Spielberg eyes up Douglas
The Port Douglas and Mossman Gazette today reports that the Douglas region could again be the location of choice for big names such as Spielberg for movies and tv series. Studio Australia Manangement said that planned series Hope's Reef and Terra Nova had encouraged the scouts to visit the area for future productions. Hope Reef was due to start filming but has been beset by delays. Terra Nova has not yet signed on the dotted line, and fluctuating dollar strength will keep the decision from being made until the last minute.
Scouts to this area could not be drawn as to which series or film they are considering this area for.
