The first preview of Channel 9’s movie based off the Schapelle Corby drug smuggler saga has been released and while it’s filled with some well known and respected Australian actors, there’s one thing in the preview that has me scratching my head…
Check out the preview below:
So what is it that has me irked?
I’m not really one to be on either side of the Corby argument. Did she do it, is she innocent? There’s so many versions of events, I think the only people that would really REALLY know the true story here is Schapelle and her family, so I find it odd that channel 9 would offer up something they believe to be so definitive in truth.
Filming for the movie hasn’t been easy for cast and crew with production only wrapping in late November after filming in the Gold Coast. The production had to use a fake movie title “Doc McGhee” to avoid attacks on the star cast and crew from angry Corby supporters who believe the movie’s origins are a complete farce (The movie is based off ‘Sins of the Father: The Untold Story Behind Schapelle Corby’s Ill-fated Drug Run‘ a book by investigative journalist Eamonn Duff). Star Krew Boylan also found herself a target from Corby supporters who labeled her as ‘prostituting her talents’ for taking on the lead role.
Schapelle: The Movie will air later this year on Channel 9
