“SO CLEVER”- The Hollywood Reporter
“GREAT”Screen International


It’s 1983. A naive man is detained by Australian Federal Police with lethal narcotics hidden in his stomach. Alone and afraid, ‘the Mule’ makes a desperate choice; to defy his bodily functions and withhold the evidence…literally.  By doing so, he becomes a ‘human time-bomb’ dragging cops, criminals and concerned family into his impossible escapade.

Inspired by true events, THE MULE is directed by Angus Sampson (Mad Max: Fury Road, Insidious) and Tony Mahony, with a darkly comic screenplay by Sampson, Leigh Whannell (Insidious, SAW), and Jaime Browne. The film stars Hugo Weaving (The Hobbit/The Matrix/The LOTR trilogies) alongside Sampson and Whannell with Ewen Leslie (The Railway Man, Jewboy) Geoff Morrell (Ned Kelly) Georgina Haig (Once Upon A Time, Fringe), Noni Hazlehurst (Little Fish) and John Noble (The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, Fringe).

Based on true events and featuring an incredible ensemble of Australia’s finest, this taut crime caper will consume, amuse and leave you on the edge of your seat.
