‘The Merger’ is an Australian feature film based on comedian Damian Callinan’s critically acclaimed one-man show of the same name. The film was being produced by the team that brought the cult hit ‘Backyard Ashes’ to Australian screens.
Director Mark Grentell again teamed up with Producer Anne Robinson in association with Damian Callinan. Callinan wrote the cinema adaptation & plays the lead role of Troy Carrington, the coach of the regional Aussie Rules team, the Bodgy Creek Roosters. The film also stars John Howard, Kate Mulvany, Fayssal Bazzi, Nick Cody, Josh McConville, Penny Cook, Rafferty Grierson, Angus McLaren & Zenia Starr
The film was shot on location in late 2017 in the Riverina in NSW in the townships of Wagga Wagga, Ganmain, Downside, Uranquinty & Yerong Creek. The Merger was kindly funded with the assistance of Create NSW & Screen Australia. The film will have a wide cinema release in Australia in mid 2018
