His brother Joel Edgerton stars in the tale of an adulterous couple involved in arson, blackmail and murder. Joel, who most recently appeared off-Broadway as Stanley Kowalski opposite Cate Blanchett in "A Streetcar Named Desire," co-wrote the screenplay with Matthew Dabner.
Apparition will release the film April 9 with Nash's short film "Spider."
"It was the short film 'Spider' that interested me in Nash," Apparition CEO Bob Berney said. "Popular at festivals all over the world, it signals the mood for the appropriately shocking and wickedly humorous follow-up feature 'The Square.' "
"Square," produced by Louise Smith, is a Screen Australia in association with the Screen New South Wales presentation of a Film Depot production in association with Blue-Tongue Films. Pathe International handles international sales.
Nash Edgerton has appeared as a stuntman in more than 100 movies, including the final two "Star Wars" films. He also has directed music videos for Bob Dylan, Ben Lee, Toni Collette and Eskimo Joe.
