The seventh series of Strike Back is currently in pre-production in Malaysia with filming due to begin later this month.

Left Bank Pictures and Cinemax’s high-octane drama is using Malaysia both to double for other locations and to play itself, and is based at Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios for the five-month shoot.

Strike Back has filmed in a variety of world locations.

The sixth season was shot largely in Budapest with a couple of weeks in Jordan, while Thailand and South Africa also provided backdrops for previous series.

Pinewood Malaysia formerly hosted production on two series of the historical drama Marco Polo, while Indian Summers – a period drama from UK-based New Pictures – doubled the country for India.

In an effort to lure domestic and international projects, the Malaysian government introduced legislation that offers a tax rebate of 30%, known as FIMI (the Film in Malaysia Incentive). There is also a national film commission to support producers and filmmakers.
