Production commences on “Now Add Honey" starring Portia de Rossi

Monday, August 05, 2013 2:20 PM | Anonymous

Production has commenced on new Aussie feature "Now Add Honey" starring Portia de Rossi.


Filming is currently taking place in Melbourne, Victoria, with Husband and wife team Wayne Hope directing wife Robyn Butler's script. 

Butler and Hope, the creators and stars of hit ABC comedy series "The Librarians," are also producing with Louisa Kors, and with Geoff Porz and Greg Sitch executive producing. 

"Now Add Honey" is Hope's directorial debut, and Butler is playing de Rossi's sister. 

“I’m delighted to be working with such an amazingly gifted crew, led by my favorite director” Butler said in a statement. 

Lucy Fry, Hamish Blake and Erik Thomson also star. The shoot is expected to take six weeks, with the film being released locally in 2014 by Roadshow Films.

The film stars de Rossie in her first Aussie film since 2003's "The Night We Called It a Day"- a comedic biopic chronicling Frank Sinatra's 1974 tour of Australia. 

"Now Add Honey" tells the story of Honey Halloway (Lucy Fry), a Hollywood teen star who returns to Australia and finds her life crumbling into chaos when her mother is sent away and she is forced to live with her aunt. Soon everyone in the family realizes their lives weren't actually that normal to begin with.
