Rumour Control: Guy Pearce on The Road?

While nothing official has been announced, we won’t be surprised if Guy Pearce joins the adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s post-apocalyptic tale The Road – especially as the man behind The Road is John Hillcoat, who worked with Pearce on The Proposition.

But it’s not just the Memento man signing up – fellow Aussie Kodi Smit-McPhee has also apparently joined the movie, alongside Robert Duvall.

They’ll be appearing with Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron in the story of a man and his son struggling to survive in the chaos of a shattered Earth. Bloody Disgusting has all the details .
