Making a science-fiction film in Australia is an achievement by any standard but creating one that consostnrtly hearalded as one of the smartest and best sci-fi films of recent years is even more of an achievement.
Tim McGahan (ACS) is one of the Brisbane-based producers who brought the Spierig Brothers’ PREDESTINATION (starring Ethan Hawke) to the screen, championing and shepherding a script that was challenging and controversial from pitch to production and promotion. How did he do it? And can he do it again with his next highly anticpated feature – the supernatural thriller WINCHESTER starring Helen Mirren, currently in pre-production.
