"Hook, Line & Sinker" Starts Shooting In Wellington

Hook Line and Sinker, from the filmmakers of the critically acclaimed film 'Taking the Waewae Express', began principal photography on Wednesday March 24, 2010.

The film stars Rangimoana Taylor (Taking the Waewae Express) and Carmel McGlone (Predicament and former Chapman Tripp Best Actress winner) in the lead roles; Geraldine Brophy (Second Hand Wedding); Alan Palmer (Shortland Street); Matt Chamberlain, (Under the Mountain); K.C. Kelly, former Senior Acting tutor at Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School and two time Chapman Tripp nominee; Eli Kent (Black Sheep) and newcomer Elizabeth McMenamin. Hook, Line and Sinker is written, directed and produced by Andrea Bosshard and Shane Loader of Torchlight Films.

The pair most recently made 'Taking the Waewae Express' , described as " that rare independent film (that) blend(s) tears and laughter, the young and the aging, and crossing cultural boundaries joyfully." by Andrew Horton, Screenwriter and author of Writing the Character Centered Screenplay.

Hook, Line & Sinker is about a truck driver in his late fifties with a workingman's pride in his job. His family, singing at his local pub, and fishing with his mates form the backbone of his modest existence. But when he fails a routine health check and loses his job, his life unravels. His task is to renegotiate a place for himself in the world, and with the love and laughter of his family and friends, he finds the courage to embark on the journey.

The film is scheduled to release in November this year.
