TWO stars of the soap drama, ‘Home and Away’ are to play the lead parts in another remake of the 1980 film, The Blue Lagoon.
Brenton Thwaites, who played Stu Henderson, and Indiana Evans, who played Matilda Hunter, have been cast in the lead roles made famous by Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins in the 1980 movie. Milla Jovovich and Brian Krause reprised the roles in 1991 film, Return to Blue Lagoon.
Thwaites and Evans, who was recently seen in ABC legal drama Crownies, will play a boy and a girl marooned on an island where they grow up together in a modern-day remake by Lifetime. Filming is scheduled to start this month in Puerto Rico.
If history repeats itself, as Perez Hilton noted, this role will be the beginning of Indiana’s rise to international stardom, while Brenton will probably just fade away like the other two male actors who have played Richard in the past.
