Exclusive interview: we chat to Hunt for the Wilderpeople stars Sam Neill and Julian Dennison


Nature goes gangsta in the riotously entertaining and sweetly affecting New Zealand comedy Hunt for the Wilderpeople, on release now in selected Cineworlds across the country.

Directed by What We Do In the Shadows filmmaker Taikia Waititi, it's the offbeat story of young foster kid Ricky (Julian Dennison) who treks into the New Zealand bush with reluctant and grumpy new foster parent Uncle Hec (Sam Neill), sparking a nationwide manhunt.

We were delighted to catch up with September's hottest comedy duo in the form of Sam and Julian – check out the interview below to get a sense of their wonderful chemistry.
