Major film to create 270 jobs down under

The action-thriller stars Academy Award Winner Russell Crowe (Unhinged, Gladiator) and Liam Hemsworth (Independence Day: Resurgence, The Hunger Games).

It follows Reaper (Crowe), an Air Force drone pilot supporting a Delta Force special ops mission in the Philippines. After the mission goes terribly wrong, he has 48 hours to remedy what has devolved into a wild rescue operation. The Tier-One team, led by Cpt. Sugar (Milo Ventimiglia ) and Sgt. Abel (Luke Hemsworth) is re-deployed to return and retrieve their captured man and the asset.

Joined by Kinney (Liam Hemsworth), a green Air Force JTAC officer, who is thrust into the middle of a high-stakes extraction. But the ground mission suddenly turns upside down and becomes a full-scale battle when the team is discovered by the enemy. With no weapons and no communication other than the drone above, Reaper becomes the young operator’s only ticket out of the Land of Bad.

Over 270 jobs will be available for local cast, crew and extras during the production, which will provide our local screen workers with the chance to collaborate and forge professional networks, to showcase their skills and our breathtaking landscapes to international audiences, and to access exciting development opportunities that will take their career to the next level.

To date, $394 million has been committed under the Location Incentive, to attract 35 international productions to Australia. This will generate more than $2.96 billion in private investment, providing more than 21,800 employment opportunities for local cast and crew, and creating work for over 21,200 businesses that support these big productions.
