Hollywood blockbuster Jurassic World: Dominion, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, is set to start shooting in Malta at the end of August.
The production, which was due to shoot in Malta earlier this year but stopped from doing so by Covid-19, will film across the island, including in Valletta, Vittoriosa, Mellieħa and Pembroke.
The Malta Film Commission is fully collaborating with the National Health Authority to make sure all safety precautions are kept with strict protocols. This includes testing units on-site where 5,000 swabs will be carried out on over 1,000 individuals involved throughout the production.
Minister for Tourism & Consumer Protection, Julia Farrugia Portelli, said: "The Malta Film Commission is expecting more international productions during this year. Starting with Jurassic World: Dominion, other multi-million dollar projects will follow with huge investment in our economy, creating more jobs to anyone working in the film industry in Malta".
“Malta will continue to show its potential globally, and as Malta Film Commission, we are proud to host Jurassic World. We are always hands-on to give the support and resources to producers,” film commissioner Johann Grech stated.
“Our recently-introduced incentives, the 40% cash-back for productions, serves as a key incentive to studios & film-makers to consider Malta for film and TV productions.”
Colin Trevorrow has returned as director for the third instalment of Jurassic World, as have the cast of the original 1993 Jurassic Park film, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill.
Filming of the blockbuster has already been taking place at Pinewood Studios in the UK over the past month, including a scene involving a plane stuck in an arctic environment....
