Ryan Kwanten who’s best known as Jason Stackhouse in HBO’s “True Blood,” will trade in supernatural for superheroics next year as he takes on the lead role in a new superhero romantic comedy called “Griff the Indivisible.”
Kwanten, who made a name for himself in a series of hilarious sex scenes in “True Blood,” will continue his role as the guy-you-can’t-take-seriously and play a hopelessly idiosyncratic weirdo by day and Griff the superhero at night. His life however changes for the better when he meets a woman who’s just as peculiar as him.
Here’s the official press:
By day Griff (Ryan Kwanten) is an everyday office worker, in an everyday town. He lives a secluded life, bullied by co-workers (Toby Schmitz) – his protective brother his only friend. By night Griff assumes his other identity, roaming the dark streets protecting the innocent and the vulnerable from the dangers that lurk in the shadows – he is the hero, GRIFF THE INVISIBLE.
Increasingly concerned by Griff’s eccentric behavior, his brother (Patrick Brammall) attempts to draw him back into the ‘real world’. In doing so he introduces Griff to Melody (Maeve Dermody) an equally eccentric and charming girl.
Fascinated by Griff’s idiosyncrasies, which are equal only to her own, Melody begins to fall for Griff. As Griff is forced to face up to realities of a mundane world, it is up to Melody to rescue GRIFF THE INVISIBLE for the sake of herself, Griff and their love for each other.
GRIFF THE INVISIBLE is the fresh, highly-original romantic comedy from the wildly fertile imagination of debut feature film writer / director Leon Ford. Starring Ryan Kwanten in the lead role of Griff (star of smash hit US TV series True Blood) and Maeve Dermody as Melody (who earned critical acclaim for her performance in Beautiful Kate), GRIFF THE INVISIBLE is fresh from international rave reviews and accolades from the Toronto International Film Festival and will (dis)appear in cinemas nationally March, 2011.
