“It’s set against the backdrop of AFL and league, which is why Wagga wasunique in the fact that it’s a hotly-contested area for both codes,” he said.

“We’ve got two characters – Justin Melvey fromDays Of Our Lives, he’s a rugby league man. And his brother Rhys Muldoon, from House Husbands, he’s an AFL man. He’s the coach of the Hawks –and they’re at each other constantly about the superior code.”

“And we bring up a lot of the legends that come from Wagga, on both sides of the coin.”

It’s not the first feature film set in Wagga and Stevens declared he’s a fan of the 2013 hitBackyard Ashes.

“I lovedBackyard Ashes, I thought they did a great job,” he said.“I know they couldn’t have done it without the support of the community, and that’s going to be the same for us really.”

Chasing Comets is expected to be in cinemas in spring.
