Bana to star in The Dry movie
Australian screen legend Eric Bana will play the lead role of Aaron Falk in the film adaptation of The Dry.
To be made by producers Made Up Stories, The Dry will be shot on location in rural Victoria, Australia. Filming began in February, with Robert Connolly (Balibo, Paper Planes, Deep State) directing.
Bruna Papandrea (Big Little Lies, Gone Girl, The Nightingale), Jodi Matterson (Down Under, 2:22) and Steve Hutensky (2:22, The Nightingale) are producing The Dry for Made Up Stories.
Of Bana's casting and the project, Jane said: "I am thrilled that Eric Bana has been cast in the lead role of Aaron Falk. It is very important to me that the nature and depth of Falk shines through and I feel Eric Bana will fully capture that."
More than 1 million copies of The Dry have been sold.
