Mission: Impossible 6 wraps New Zealand filming
Action sequel Mission: Impossible 6 has wrapped several weeks of location filming in New Zealand with Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie.
McQuarrie and members of the cast have used social media to offer regular snapshots of the shoot’s extensive aerial filming that has focused on New Zealand’s South Island.
Back in March, Paramount Pictures confirmed that the new film was to be shot on location in the UK, Paris, New Zealand and India.
The movie is using Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden near London as its production base and has already shot car chase sequences in Paris, using the country’s boosted rebate support.
New Zealand’s capital Wellington recently stood in for an Asian-inspired city in action movie Ghost in the Shell. The country has also hosted the mutant shark action film Meg, which resulted in new permanent water tank facility Kumeu Film Studios being established near Auckland on the North Island.
In May, New Zealand announced it would be allocating NZ$240m over the next four years to incentivising international movies and TV shows to film in the country. The New Zealand Screen Production Grant offers a base 20% filming incentive on eligible local spending.
