Jack Irish wraps

Two-Part telemovie Jack Irish, starring Guy Pearce and Shane Jacobson, has recently wrapped production. Shot on Lemac’s Arri Alexa cameras by Martin McGrath, also using the internal record option (see our story on The Slap), it is set to be a big success when released on ABC TV next year.

The two telemovies that have been produced by Essential Media are based on the novels by award-winning author Peter Temple (winner of the prestigious UK Crime Writer Award in 2007), Bad Debts and Black Tide.

Jack Irish tells the story of a former criminal lawyer, now part-time private eye and debt collector, and is based in Melbourne.
