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 is a New Year's Day general release in Australian cinemas.
Bana said he had already read and felt a deep connection with the book before he was approached to play the lead.
"Jane had plotted this amazing journey that we then got to turn into the best possible version for cinema," he said.
More than 1 million copies of The Dry have been sold worldwide.
