Australian screen legend Eric Bana plays the lead role of Aaron Falk in the film adaptation of The Dry by Made Up Stories.
The Dry was filmed across more than 15 towns in rural Victoria, Australia, in 2019, with Robert Connolly (Balibo, Paper Planes, Deep State) directing.
Bruna Papandrea, Jodi Matterson and Steve Hutensky are producing The Dry for Made Up Stories.
The movie's release in Australia, previously scheduled for August 27, is now set for New Year's Day.
Of Bana's casting and the project, Jane said: "I am thrilled Eric Bana has been cast to play Aaron Falk. It is very important to me that the nature and depth of Falk shines through and I feel Eric Bana has fully captured that."
More than 1 million copies of The Dry have been sold worldwide.
