The Queensland Premier announced yesterday that a movie is to filmed in the Whitsundays later this year.
This is an exciting development, although it will by no means be the first TV show or movie to be made in this part of Australia (some of which are listed here). One of the more recent movies (partly) filmed in the area was 'Unbroken'.
Anyway the movie that's to be made later this year will star George Clooney and Julia Roberts, certainly a couple of great actors.
"Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk today announced the romantic comedy that brings Clooney and Roberts together again will be filmed exclusively in Queensland at the Whitsundays, the Gold Coast and in Brisbane.
“This is huge news for Queensland and further evidence of our global reputation as the place to be for TV and film production,” the Premier said.
“Ticket to Paradise will inject an estimated $32.7 million into the Queensland economy and create more than 1,000 jobs for local cast, crew and extras.”

Synergy Management has also recently advertised for extras for this production, including people of Indonesian appearance (www.synergymanagement.com.au)
(Psst, it's a secret: Our home in Mandalay Road is being considered as a possible filming location. I'll provide an update on this as soon as news comes to hand)
