In the currently untitled project, Fey plays a journalist and self-confessed adrenaline junkie who recounts her six years of reporting on terrorism and international affairs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. Peacocke will play Nic, her alpha-male Kiwi bodygaurd who has the hots for her. This is the pic that at one point was titled Fun House.
Peacocke recently ended a multi-year run as a star of popular Aussie soap Home And Away — the same launchpad used by another Aussie import, Chris Hemsworth. It’s a country that keeps churning out tough guys, a list that includes 300: Rise Of An Empire and Strike Back star Sullivan Stapleton. Peacocke is angling for a similar push, and he just made his major film debut last year with a part in Paramount/MGM’s Hercules.
He is repped by CAA, Brillstein, Hansen Jacobsen and Sophie Jermyn in Australia.
