Australian/Israel co-prod in the works

Underbelly actor Dan Mor is developing a script based on his father’s experiences in the Six Days War, which he hopes will be an Australian/Israeli co-production.

“It will have a global appeal and a clear anti-war message. The project is currently at treatment stage and I am working with experienced industry writers to develop that treatment into an international feature film,” Mor told Encore.

Mor is working with Templar Films, the production compay behind Cedar Boys – a film in which Mor played the character of Danny. He can be currently seen in Underbelly: The Golden Mile as Danny Karam.

The actor is currently preparing himself for the transition to writer.

“I have been diligently training in the Meisner technique at my school, The Actors Pulse, as well as developing my knowledge of script writing skills and understanding the importance of ‘story’ and ‘character’,” he explained.

“I recently completed a three-stage, six-month script writing, analysis and breakdown course.  I hope to bring to the production table my strong buisiness acumen – I own a diamond trading company called Rich and Mor – as well as my recent training and my strong desire to produce and bring to life this very exciting story that is dear to my heart.”

To date, the only feature made under the Israel co-production treaty is last year’s animated film $9.99.
