JOHN DOE Trailer Reveals Jamie Bamber as Vigilante Serial Killer

Update: It seems whoever posted this trailer didn't have permission to. It's been pulled from the web in recent days due to a copyright claim from the producers.

Not many non-Australian actors can do an Aussie accent. Most, like Quentin Tarantino in Django Unchained, maul it so horribly that it becomes comedy to us antipodean listeners. However the tide seems to be turning, slowly. Liev Schreiber (helpfully dating dialogue coach Naomi Watts) reportedly delivered a flawless Aussie accent in Mental and now Jamie Bamber absolutely nails it in the new trailer for John Doe

That's not all he nails. Apparently Bamber plays some kind of serial killer, bringing vigilante justice to criminals who haven't yet paid their debts to society. Judging by the trailer, he inspires some kind of V for Vendetta style revolution with masked followers, although he himself is caught and interviewed by a stern-bearded Lachy Hulme. 

No word as to a release date (we have a poster below that says 2012) but the trailer premiere suggests something is around the corner.

    I honestly had no idea that Tarantino was supposed to be Australian in Django. I couldn't figure out what accent he was going for.

  • I was part of a round table interview with Quentin for Django and one of the other guys there (a super well respected critic here) asked him if he was going for South African. That didn't go over so well.

    I heard that QT did his dialogue last in those scenes so he could watch Jarratt and practise his accent. Imagine what it was like before!

    Also the script said there where from Australia, and wasn't it a plot point that they where kinda slaves, because they had to work to afford the ticket home to Australia.

    I think that was the role Joseph Gordon-Levitt was suppose to do.

    Anthony LaPaglia was also attached at one point.
