:: Release date set for Swinging Safari

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

SWINGING SAFARI (formerly titled Flammable Children) will be released across Australia on January 11 2018. Written and directed by Stephan Elliott, the comedy features an all-star cast that includes Guy Pearce, Kylie Minogue, Radha Mitchell, Julian McMahon, Asher Keddie and Jeremy Sims, alongside Jack Thompson, Darcey Wilson and newcomer Atticus Robb. Set in a typical Australian beachside neighbourhood, at the height of a 1970s summer, SWINGING SAFARI is a love letter to a world of careless parenting, constant sunburn and unsupervised activities.

SWINGING SAFARI reunites several key members of the team behind Australian classic The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of The Desert, with Stephan Elliott and Guy Pearce joined by producer Al Clark, production designer Colin Gibson (who recently won an Oscar, BAFTA and AACTA for his work on Mad Max: Fury Road) and Oscar, BAFTA and Tony award-winning costume designer, Lizzy Gardiner, as well as editor Sue Blainey and composer Guy Gross. Other key creatives on SWINGING SAFARI are cinematographer Brad Shield (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, The Avengers and The Wolverine) and Oscar-nominated make-up artist, Rick Findlater who worked on the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Hobbit trilogy, Unbroken and The Chronicles of Narnia.

SWINGING SAFARI is produced by Al Clark for Wildheart Films and Jamie Hilton and co-producer Ester Harding for See Pictures, and has been jointly financed by Screen Australia, Piccadilly Pictures, Screen Queensland, Screen NSW and Cutting Edge.
