Legendary pictures has recently announced that it will film its new King Kong film in Vietnam, Australia, and Hawaii with all three having substantial shooting time. Additionally, it was announced the film will spend at least $10.9 million in Queensland, Australia in order to access land for filming. This is a great opportunity for Vietnam to secure beneficial funds and attention toward itself. The potential for future filming opportunities will greatly increase following this film and with that, more economic prosperity with the money that these films bring to their filming locations’ home countries.
