Director Kieran Darcy-Smith’s debut feature Say Nothing is set to start filming in Sydney this month.


Touted as a psychological drama, the film follows four friends on a South East Asian holiday. When only three return home, they are left to figure out what happened to their companion on that fateful night in Cambodia.

Darcy-Smith is best known as an actor, starring in films such as The Square, September and Two Hands, however, he has also directed short films including Loaded, Bloodlock and The Island.

His debut feature, Say Nothing, stars Teresa Palmer (The Sorcerer's Apprentice) and Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom) as Steph and Dave, one half of the group of friends.

“Joel and Teresa round out an incredibly exciting team for us,” Darcy-Smith said in a statement. “We’re lucky to be working with such a remarkable group of talented artists, cast and crew, who are giving their all.”

Filming will continue in Cambodia in January 2011.

The film is written by Darcy-Smith and Felicity Price, and is being distributed by Hopscotch Films in Australia and New Zealand. International sales are being handled by LevelK.

The film has been funded by Screen Australia, Screen NSW and Fulcrum Media Finance.
