Balls Up starring Mark Wahlberg and Paul Walter Hauser is set to commence filming in Queensland, Australia this month at Village Roadshow Studios.

Green Book's Peter Farrelly is directing, with Wolverine and Deadpool writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese penning the screenplay.

According to a statement from Screen Queensland, the Amazon MGM Studios and Skydance comedy will "generate an estimated $64.8 million for the Queensland economy, employing approximately 250 local cast and crew, as well as utilising small businesses."

The film follows two American marketing executives who are fired for blowing a client sponsorship opportunity and decide to use their free tickets to a major soccer match. Their drunken debauchery leads them to be hunted by every person across the country.

Other international productions to take place in Queensland include Ron Howard’s Eden, The Bluff, and Good Cop/Bad Cop.

Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger, produce alongside Andrew Muscato, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese.
