Another Hollywood movie set to be filmed in Victoria
Another Hollywood movie is coming to Victoria.
Live-action animation film Woody Woodpecker 2 will be filmed in Melbourne and regional towns across the state.
Federal Minister for Communications and the Arts, Paul Fletcher, says the film will get $2.7 million in funding from the federal Location Incentive program, and it’ll bring a huge cash injection to the state.
“Employment is more than 700 Australian cast and crew on this sequel, more than 300 Australian extras,” he said.
“It’ll inject around $20 million into the economy.”
Mr Fletcher says the Location Incentive program is “a long game”.
“Our location incentive is $540 million, it goes through to 2026/27,” he said.
“This is now the 25th global production we’ve attracted, and that in total means some 16,800 employment opportunities for local cast and crew.”
