Aussie friends: Watch out for shooting of TRACKS

 Add TRACKS to the list of adventure adaptations we're looking forward to!

Adam Driver, who plays Lena Dunham’s bizarre boyfriend in HBO’s Girls, has just been cast in Tracks, the saga of a young Australian woman’s camel trek across the Australian Outback in 1977. Driver plays Rick Smolan, a New York photographer that the National Geographic sent to chronicle Davidson's  1,400-mile journey. Tracks starts shooting on October 8 in locations in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Driver, whose movie career is gaining momentum, also plays Samuel Beckwith in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln and has a supporting role in the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis. I saw him in  J.Edgar Hoover the other night. Currently he’s shooting Michael Dowse’s romantic dramedy The F Word with Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan.

Mia Wasikowska plays Robyn Davidson, whose book of the same name is being adapted by writer-director John Curran. Producers are See-Saw Productions’ Emile Sherman and Iain Canning (The King’s Speech) with Julie Ryan (Red Dog) as co-producer.
