 The following media release is dated 17 October 2012 PST:

 

New Zealand-born actor James Morcan has been cast to play leading roles in upcoming Australian-Indian films ‘My Cornerstone’ and ‘Love You Krishna’.

James (34) is also the screenwriter on both productions which will be filmed in Sydney, Australia and several locations on the Indian subcontinent.

Indian-Australian filmmaker Stanley Joseph, of World Pictures Australia, is producing and directing ‘Love You Krishna’ and ‘My Cornerstone’. The stories for the films, which are quirky romantic comedies exploring multiculturalism and spiritual faith, reflect some of Joseph’s own experiences as an Indian migrant in Australia.

James, who resides in Sydney, is also a film producer and novelist. Recent productions he has performed in include the Australian independent feature film ‘The Pawn’ and ‘Ben Hur: The Stadium Spectacular’ with Russell Crowe. Morcan was also Executive Producer on last year’s New Zealand feature film ‘Desired’ which premiered at Cannes Marche du Film in France.

As an author, James co-writes novels with his Bay of Plenty-based father Lance Morcan. Their recently published novels include ‘The Ninth Orphan’, an international thriller, ‘The Orphan Factory’, a coming-of-age spy thriller, and ‘Fiji: A Novel’, an historical adventure.

‘My Cornerstone’ and ‘Love You Krishna’ will be shot simultaneously. Filming is scheduled to begin next month.
