Some big names coming to Docklands

28 Feb 2017

By Sunny Liu

Docklands Studios will welcome some big names in the global film scene this year, when shootings for international and local productions like “Stem” and “Winchester” will take place.

Melbourne-born director Leigh Whannell, who shot to fame for co-creating the hit horror film Saw with fellow Australian filmmaker James Wan in 2004, will return to his hometown to direct the new sci-fi thriller Stem.

According to Film Victoria, the state government was able to secure Stem through its production incentive fund.

This Goalpost Pictures and Blumhouse Productions film is said to create more than 200 jobs locally and contribute millions of dollars to the state’s economy.

Shootings for Stem will primarily take place at Docklands Studios and some surrounding locations.

Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley says it is great to see local talents recognised internationally.

“In securing this project Victoria has reaffirmed its reputation as a great place to produce feature films, generating employment opportunities and boosting economic activity for our screen industry,” Mr Foley said.

Australian brothers Peter and Michael Spierig will also bring their supernatural thriller Winchester to Docklands Studio this year.
