Interview: Eric Bana and Force of Nature: The Dry 2 director Robert Connolly on saving cinema and the pressures of a sequel

In Force of Nature: The Dry 2, when five women take part in a corporate hiking retreat and only four come out on the other side, Federal Agents Aaron Falk (Eric Bana) and Carmen Cooper (Jacqueline McKenzie) head deep into the Victorian mountain ranges to investigate in the hopes of finding their whistle-blowing informant, Alice Russell (Anna Torv), alive.

Talking with Peter Gray ahead of the film’s national release on February 8th, director Robert Connolly and star/producer Eric Bana touched on their original film saving cinema amidst the pandemic, the battling filmic conditions, and could we see The Nugget 2?

Force of Nature:  The Dry 2 is screening in Australian theatres from February 8th, 2024.
