Salzburg pays 300.000 Euro for Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise

The new Hollywood action movie called “The Unknown Wichita Project” is also shot in Salzburg. The city government paid a state grant of 300.000 Euro to support the costs of the filming.

The city of Salzburg and the rail line from Zell am See to Böckstein are going to be the shooting locations for the movie. Another locations of the movie are also Boston, Sevilla, and Hawaii. Tom Cruise will play an agent who is searching for inexhaustible sources of energy. He is going to fall in love with a woman played by Cameron Diaz. There will be a chase over the continents with a lot of fun and action.

The government of Salzburg is proud that all permissions for the filming spots are available in time. Clerical and official sites had to give their agreement for some special places. There is also a pursuit on the roofs of Salzburgs old town.

The advisor of Salzburgs economy, who is also a member of the Peoples party, claims that the sum of 300.000 Euro is good invested money. “There will be a crew of 200 persons who are going to stay in Salzburg for more than three weeks. They need 200 hotel rooms of the four and five star category. This means a net product of 1,2 mio Euro”, says the advisor.
