Studio secures new film

01 Oct 2013

By Sean Car

Docklands will provide the primary filming location for international feature  ‘The Moon and the Sun’, staring renowned actors Pierce Brosnan, Bill Nighy and Fan Bing Bing.

The film will be primarily filmed at the stages of Docklands Studios and a range of locations throughout Victoria.

The fantasy/adventure film, which is based on the award-winning novel by Vonda McIntyre, will be produced by Cosmos Filmed Entertainment in association with a host of other international and Australian producers.

The Moon and the Sun is scheduled to commence pre-production in January 2014 with principal photography to start in April.

Announcing the filming, Minister for Innovation, Services and Small Business Louise Asher said: “Securing significant international screen projects such as The Moon and the Sun enhances Victoria’s reputation as a world-leading, cosmopolitan state for innovative film production.”

Emmy nominee and BAFTA winner Sean McNamara will direct from a screenplay by former CEO and chairman of Fox Studios Bill Mechanic who said it was an honour to bring the international production to life in Melbourne.

“We have a beautiful French story, acclaimed English and Chinese actors, and the best Australian creative talent all combining to make a unique adult fairy tale,” he said.

Film Victoria CEO, Jenni Tosi, said that the organisation was thrilled that the producers of The Moon and the Sun have chosen Melbourne as the location for the production.
