Filming commences in Geelong for new STAN original movie NITRAM


Stan has confirmed details for its next original film production, NITRAM, which is currently in production in Geelong, Victoria.

From the award-winning team behind the Stan Original Film True History of the Kelly Gang and Snowtown, director Justin Kurzel and writer Shaun Grant, NITRAM is a scripted feature film that looks at the events leading up to one of the darkest chapters in Australian history in an attempt to understand why and how this atrocity occurred.

The cast features Caleb Landry Jones (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Judy Davis (The Dressmaker), Essie Davis (True History of the Kelly Gang) and Anthony LaPaglia (Lantana).

GoodThing Productions’ Nick Batzias and Virginia Whitwell (2040, The Australian Dream) are producing, with Madman Entertainment handling theatrical distribution. NITRAM will premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival next year after receiving funding through the MIFF Premiere Fund. Wild Bunch International are handling worldwide sales of the film.

Stan Chief Content Officer Nick Forward said:

“Stan is pleased to again collaborate with Justin Kurzel and Shaun Grant and we have complete faith in the NITRAM team’s creative vision and ability to handle the film’s subject matter with sensitivity and respect.”

Stan Original Film NITRAM will premiere on Stan and in cinemas in 2021.
