(Dubai) – Skydance Production CEO and founder David Ellison has told the press that he will be filming the third instalment of the sci-fi franchise in Dubai and Vancouver. Now, Dubai Film and TV Commission (DFTC) are confirming the geeky glee: Filming of the project is due to kick off as soon as October in the UAE.
Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), highlighted the importance of this influx of Hollywood movies that are filming in the region, as they cement Dubai as a “world-class tourist destination”.
“The city’s world-renowned architecture, diverse landscapes and attractions are proving increasingly attractive to filmmakers and we are seeing Dubai gain a reputation as a world-class filming location,” he said.
DTCM, DFTC, the Dubai Media Office and the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) will all be involved.
