Peter Farrelly’s ‘Ricky Stanicky’ starts filming in Melbourne

Farrelly, who won Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay Oscars in 2018 for Green Book, said he was happy to be back in Australia.

Production of Ricky Stanicky has started in Victoria and is expected to inject more than $70 million into the Australian economy, says the Labor Government, with $9.5 million in support from the Government’s Location Incentive along with support from the Victorian Screen Incentive.

The feature comedy follows three childhood friends who create a fictitious character to get them out of sticky situations. When their partners become suspicious, they’re forced to hire a washed-up actor to bring him to life with dire, yet hilarious consequences.
