Filmmakers Love the UAE!
The UAE is becoming a popular destination for Hollywood and Bollywood productions, with movies like Furious 7, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Independence Day: Resurgence, Star Trek Beyond and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol all being shot right here!
Authorities in this country are super co-operative, which makes production easier for directors. Plus, like Will Smith pointed out while he was here, there aren’t any paparazzi!
War Machine, a sarcastic comedy, features Brad Pitt, Anthony Michael Hall from The Breakfast Club and Will Poulter from The Maze Runner. The movie is based on Michael Hasting’s book, The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan. We’re glad they changed the movie title to something shorter!
The film will feature 20 locations across the UAE and a 500 extras from over 20 nationalities.
It’s as international as the UAE itself!
