The first casualty of war is the truth.
Variety.com has reported back in June 2014 that Sam Worthington (Avatar), Hugh Dancy (Hannibal) and Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) “head the cast…of the high-profile Australian mini-series”.
For those who are unfamiliar with the project, the story of Deadline Gallipolli explores “the origin of the Gallipolli legend, when Australian and New Zealand troops were sent into a hopeless battle in Turkey during WWI.” (Variety.com) . The filming takes place on the outskirts of Werribee in Victoria, in the Mornington Peninsula and Bacchus Marsh. Of course, Turkey comes to life with the help of CGI. The series is intended to mark the 100th anniversary of the campaign and will be aired in 2015
