First Pics From Oz Prison Drama CONVICT

Simon de Bruyn, Contributing Writer
Almost 25 years after making his screen debut as the lead in John Hillcoat's intense prison thriller Ghosts... Of The Civil Dead, Australian actor David Field has returned to prison for the setting of his second feature as director, Convict.

Field co-directs this time with George Basha, who wrote the script for both this and Field's debut feature The Combination. Both Field and Basha also act in Convict. Here's the synopsis: 

Ray (George Basha) finds himself serving two years for manslaughter by the same government he served and fought for. He is sent to a prison built by the original convicts. From the day that he arrives he is given special attention. He is pushed mentally and physically. He has to learn how to navigate his way around the internal politics and turf wars that exist inside the prison just to survive.

With the release of the film planned for 2013, the production has released some early stills which show some of the characters inside the prison. They seem a pleasant bunch. As usual, click below to enlarge the images.
