Film's Release Postponed to Preserve Australian Defendant's Fair Trial Rights
Distributors of the film Wolf Creek have agreed to postpone its screening in Australia's Northern Territory until after Bradley John Murdoch's trial ends. Murdoch stands accused of murdering tourist Peter Falconio and assaulting his companion, Joanne Lees. Wolf Creek is based partly on the Falconio killing and government lawyers fear that its release would prejudice jurors. It opens wide across Australia November 3.
