Delta Goodrem will star in her first feature film since 2005’s “Hating Alison Ashley” as she takes on the lead role in “Love is in the Air”.
She will star as Dana Randall, a seaplane pilot flying in the tropics who finds herself falling for the man sent to sink her business.
“Love is in the Air” will film in Queensland’s Whitsundays, supported by the Queensland Government via Screen Queensland and production will be based in Airlie Beach.
It will be produced by Brisbane-based Jaggi Entertainment, with producers Steve Jaggi, Kelly Son Hing and Kylie Pascoe. Lee Mathews, Janine Pearce, Michael Gray and Jip Panosot will be executive producers.
Adrian Powers is directing.
Goodrem said: “I feel incredibly fortunate to be shooting here in the Whitsundays, we’ve been made to feel so welcome by the local community.
“I’m enjoying being back on set, portraying a go-getter like Dana and I’m looking forward to sharing the film with audiences.”
Screen Queensland’s CEO, Courtney Gibson, said the production will be completely made in Queensland, with the support of the Screen Finance program, Regional Incentive and Post, Digital and Visual Effects (PDV) Incentive.
“We are proud to provide end-to-end support for this latest production by Jaggi Entertainment — a Logie and AACTA-nominated company, whose Queensland creations have been hits for industry leaders such as Disney and Hallmark, and topped global Netflix charts,” she said.
“From the first day on set to the last day in the editing suite, “Love is in the Air” will generate approximately $2.25 million for the state economy and 70 jobs for Queensland cast and crew.”
The film will also star Joshua Sasse (“Monarch”), Roy Billing (“Underbelly”) and Steph Tisdell (“Total Control”).
Other recent productions in Queensland’s northern regions include Stan’s “Black Snow” and Universal Pictures’ “Ticket to Paradise”, both filmed in and around the Whitsundays.
