Queensland will be home to Academy Award winners George Clooney and Julia Roberts for the filming of Universal Pictures’ Ticket to Paradise this year.
Principal photography of the feature film will be done exclusively in Queensland at the Whitsundays, the Gold Coast and in Brisbane.
Secured by the Queensland Government via Screen Queensland’s Production Attraction Strategy, the big-budget blockbuster features George and Julia as a divorced couple who travel to Bali (for which the Whitsundays will be standing in) to attend their daughter’s wedding. It is directed by Ol Parker (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again).
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.
All suitably qualified and available Queensland crew are invited to submit an expression of interest for crew positions.
