NICOLE Kidman, Guy Pearce and Hugo Weaving are to star in mystery drama Strangerland.

The film, which will take the actors back home to star in Australia, will be based around the disappearance of some teenage children in the Outback.

Kim Farrant, whose previous credits include the documentary Naked on the Inside and the TV series Rush, will direct from a script by Fiona Seres and Michael Kinirons.

Screen Australia are among the backers and, according to Variety, have described Strangerland as having a “strong creative potential and massive A-list festival potential”.
