Guy Pearce and Kylie Minogue are set to star in Stephan Elliott’s Flammable Children opposite Radha Mitchell. It would make the first time the two appear on screen together since starring almost 30 years ago in the popular soap Neighbours. The new comedy from Elliott (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert) takes place in 1975. The sexual revolution is in full swing; Australia is in the throes of a constitutional crisis; and in a sleepy beachside suburb, an extraordinary event will set in motion a crucial, comical and revelatory week for a teenage boy and girl. Something is about to go spectacularly wrong, and their lives will change forever.

Al Clark (Chopper) produces alongside See Pictures’ Jamie Hilton. Screen Australia, Screen NSW, Screen Queensland, Becker Film Group and Cutting Edge will finance the film with international sales handled by West End Films.
