Delta Goodrem has announced that she will be heading up the cast for Australian feature film "Hating Alison Ashley." According to producers John Brousek and Elizabeth Howatt-Jackman, "the classic Australian novel will be turned into a contemporary film for today's youth while remaining true to the characters and story which made the book so popular. With Delta in the title role we are well on the way to achieving this."
Delta of course is no stranger to acting having begun performing at the age of 7. She has appeared in a diverse range of roles for both TV and Theatre including "A Country Practice," "Hey Dad," "GP," "Neighbours," and "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe." Delta had this to say about the upcoming role, "I have been offered a quite a few roles over the past two years and whilst the timing for this movie is not ideal, I really felt a strong desire to accept the part of Alison Ashley. I adore the book and have an enormous respect for both John and Elizabeth, both of who I am very much looking forward to working with. The movie will be shot over a six week period and as I am well on the road to recovery this will be a great way to ease my self back into work after such a long time away, who knows, perhaps Alison will inspire a song for the future as well! I am really looking forward to further expanding my experiences and move into the unknown world of movies." Filming will commence later this year in Melbourne.
