Holly Hunter - Holly Hunter Reuniting With Campion For Tv Drama

Oscar winner Holly Hunter is reuniting with her The Piano director Jane Campion to star in TV drama Top Of The Lake.
The star won a Best Actress Academy Award for her turn in the 1993 film, and now Hunter and Campion are to work together again on a six-part Bbc Tv series.
The actress is to star opposite Mad Men's Elizabeth Moss, who will play a detective hunting for a pregnant 12-year-old girl in the show.
Campion, who is filming the series in New Zealand from February (12), says, "I am in love with the intense beauty of southernmost New Zealand and am excited to be setting a story in this end of the world paradise. To be able to tell the story over six hours gives myself and my brilliant team a chance to make something truly absorbing and memorable."
Trainspotting star Peter Mullan and Lord of the Rings actor David Wenham will also appear in the drama when it hits screens in 2013.
