The Bureau of Magical Things to resume in July

Despite borders still shut Qld Premier talks up the local screen industry.

10 Peach kids series The Bureau of Magical Things, will resume filming on the Gold Coast in July, presumably after the Queensland border re-opens.

Qld Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told media the Jonathan M. Shiff production employs more than 200 cast and crew and injects more than $8.5 million into the Queensland economy.

Also returning to production soon are feature films This Little Love of Mine, by Brisbane-based Steve Jaggi Company in Cairns, and Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis bio-pic on the Gold Coast. The latter also saw Tom Hanks test positive, becoming one of the first high-profile stars impacted.

“We want to ensure that this can happen as soon as possible while making sure that the cast and crew can operate safely,” she said.

“Screen Queensland and Queensland Health are also currently developing a screen industry COVID safe plan that will be released shortly, paving the way for the whole sector to get rolling cameras again and crew back to work on sets.”
