Famed Australian-English actor Hugo Weaving will be joining the cast of the movie Jasper Jones, a coming-of-age tale set to start shooting in Pemberton, Western Australia at the end of October. Weaving will be joining Toni Collette as the second major actor to commit to the project.

Jasper Jones is based on Craig Silvey's acclaimed novel of the same name, published in 2009. In the story, an aspiring writer named Charlie Bucktin finds himself in the middle of a grisly crime drama playing out in a small mining town in Australia. The novel has been compared favorably to Harper Lee's best-seller "To Kill A Mockingbird" for its unflinching analysis of bigotry and racism in a fictional Australian town. Silvey has won several awards and universal critical praise for his excellent bildungsroman.

Weaving has signed on to play the town recluse, a character with obvious connections to Lee's unforgettable Boo Radley. Having played other eccentric and mysterious characters in films such as the Matrix trilogy, the Lord of the Rings and Cloud Atlas, Weaving is well-versed in creating sympathy for characters that might or might not deserve it.

The film will be directed by Rachel Perkins, who has several small films under her belt already. She is the daughter of civil rights activist Charles Perkins, a connection that will no doubt inform her adaptation of the novel to the silver screen. With actors as steady as Hugo Weaving and Toni Collette framed in her camera lens, everything seems to be lining up for Perkins and Jasper Jones to take Hollywood by storm.
