The next instalment of Marvel Studio’s major blockbuster ‘Thor’ franchise will be filmed in Sydney.
Production of Thor: Love and Thunder will start in March with filming commencing in August 2020.
Marvel Studios will be offering a trainee program to further enhance the skills of Australia’s next-generation of screen talent, working with students at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, the National Institute of Dramatic Arts and tertiary institutions to target skill shortages.
Speaking from the Australian Film, Television and Radio School in Sydney, Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, said the announcement solidifies Australia as a world-class filming and post-production destination.
“The film is expected to invest over $178 million in our economy, create up to 2,500 jobs and use the services of around 1,650 businesses,” said Minister Paul Fletcher.
“Australia has an ongoing relationship with Marvel Studios and I’m very pleased they will return to our shores again next year to take advantage of our world-leading screen industry for the next instalment of the ‘Thor’ franchise.”
