Former Neighbours star Tim Robards is teaming up with Home and Away stars (and real-life couple) Sophie Dillman and Patrick O'Connor.

Yep, all our Aussie soap crossover dreams have come true, as the trio are set to star in short movie Sherbrooke Down: The Road to Cataract together.

Tim – who left his role of Pierce Greyson on Neighbours last summer – shared footage on social media from the set of the short, teasing an on-screen scrap with Patrick.

"Just taking a look around set," Tim said in the clip. "This is the scene of the crime tomorrow. Going to have a fight and throw Paddy out that door. Hopefully no-one will get injured."

According to the Facebook description, Sherbrooke Down: The Road to Cataract is a "Proof of Concept/short film, to promote the feature film Sherbrooke Down, currently under development", and is due for release in late March.

"1901, New South Wales," the synopsis reads. "When independent brickmaker and family man Matthew Keene gets bad news about a desperately needed contract, he is oblivious of those who want worse for him."

Tim left Neighbours four weeks earlier than planned back in August due to travel restrictions in Australia, with Don Hany taking over the role of Pierce for the character's final scenes.

In a goodbye message, he thanked the show and told fans: "I want to say a big thank you to you guys for watching Pierce and inviting Pierce into your living rooms. I hope you've got some enjoyment out of him – maybe sometimes some frustration, some anger, some laughs – but thank you again for supporting me, everyone that's supported me on this journey."
