We sat down with the Nicholas Verso, who’s making his directorial debut with the new film Boys in the Trees, which is out in cinemas today. During out chat, the director looks back on writing the script for the film some five years ago, and how timely the film has ended up being with the popularity of Stranger Things.
We talk about nostalgia and the soundtrack – from Marilyn Manson to Nirvana, and Verso shared a story about how they had to get Dave Grohl’s help – by way of executive producer Michael Gudinski – to get Nirvana into the film.
Verso goes on to talk about filming in Adelaide, what people can expect from the film, the support of his family and the North American influences to the story.
Boys in the Trees is in cinemas now.
