“…Dunedin director Mike Wallis used the landscapes of Central Otago and the Mackenzie Country as a stand-in for the Wild West for his film, Good for Nothing.
The western will be shown at cinemas in three US regions from next month – and will be released in New Zealand cinemas in May.
Wallis said he was “stoked” to get US distribution for his first feature film.
“It is tremendous.
It is confirmation that we made a film with universal appeal – and that is what we really wanted to do,” he said.
“We were really hoping that it would have a wider reach.
We are really thrilled about it.
“We shot the film on a very cinematic scale – and it was always designed to be on the big screen.”..”
