Missy Higgins is returning home to Australia to begin filming a feature film adaptation of cult musical ‘Brand New Dae’. The singer songwriter will play the character of Annie alongside Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush as Father Benedictus, Ernie Dingo as Tadpole & Dan Sultan as Lester in the movie, set in the summer of 1967.
“Broome holds a special place in my heart so this opportunity felt like something I just couldn’t pass up on,” Higgins said. “I fell in love with all the characters when I read the script, ecspecially my character (Annie) who is a hilarious hippie. Being my first go at acting I’m a bit terrified but I feel very honored to be working alongside such an incredible cast and crew and I know it’s gonna be a lot of fun.”
