Iron Sky starts shooting in Queensland

The Australia/Germany/Finland co-production, sci-fi comedy Iron Sky, started shooting in Brisbane and the Gold Coast yesterday.

“Flooding has not affected us too much, although the location of our first shoot day was under water the next day,” New Holland Pictures producer Mark Overett told Encore.

Iron Sky stars Australia/New Zealand actors Peta Sargeant, Christopher Kirby and Stephanie Paul, alongside a European cast. It takes place in the year 2018, when the Nazis, who fled the Earth to the dark side of the Moon in 1945, return to claim the Earth.

The film was originally conceived and developed as a Finnish-German project, produced by Tero Kaukomaa (Blind Spot Pictures), Samuli Torssonen (Energia Productions) and Oliver Damian (27 Films Production). Australian/New Zealand company New Holland Pictures joined the project last year, with an official announcement made during the Cannes Film Festival.

The Queensland shoot will continue until February 4, shooting all interiors, exteriors of spaceships and the surface of the moon.
