Another movie produced in the Whitsundays

Updated: Sep 14

The Queensland Premier announced yesterday that a movie is to filmed in the Whitsundays in late 2021.


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 subsequently been filmed stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts - certainly a couple of great actors. The movie will be launched late in 2022 (wiki entry and related article).


"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.”
