Thousands of Australians will have the opportunity to work on the set of blockbuster film Godzilla vs Kong and Disney series Reef Break, with pre-production set to begin on the Gold Coast this month.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison is expected to officially announce the two productions during a visit to the sunshine state on Monday, which will boost the local economy by $100 million, News Corp reports.
A $140 million tax break announced in this year's federal budget has helped lure film production to Australia, effectively doubling the existing rebate offered for films to 30 per cent.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said she was delighted that the federal government had kicked in the cash to boost the industry.
"I visited the film studios in the US in February and June, and it is great to see that the federal government is matching, coming on board with their contribution," she told Today on Monday.
"Ours has been on the table for months so finally it is all systems go and the movie industry means long-term secure jobs."
