Kylie Minogue and Guy Pearce are set to come to Queensland to film a comedy movie by Priscilla Queen of the Desert writer-director Stephan Elliott.
Kylie will star alongside Guy in the film, titled Flammable Children, marking the first time the pair have appeared onscreen together since they played friends in Neighbours at the beginning of their careers in the 1980s.
Stephan Elliott will also be reunited with Priscilla star Guy as well as some other cast and crew of the 1994 drag classic.
Flammable Children is set in 1975, when “the sexual revolution is in full swing; Saigon will fall; the first sounds of 2JJ are hitting the airwaves; Australia is in constitutional crisis; and in a sleepy beachside suburb, an extraordinary event will set in motion a crucial, comical and revelatory week for a teenage boy and girl. Something is about to go spectacularly wrong, and their lives will change forever,” Screen Australia explained.
“Flammable Children is going to be smart and funny, with a distinctly nostalgic flavour that people will really connect with,” Screen Australia CEO Graeme Mason said.
“In Kylie and Guy, we have been able to secure two of Australia’s most established and iconic talents.”
Kylie Minogue’s last major role in a local film was 1989’s “The Delinquents” but the singer has said over the last few years that she’s been looking to return to acting.
“Flammable Children” will begin shooting on the south-east coast of Queensland in early October.
