I’ve been following the developments of the B-Team Project and it seems that people are not as excited as they should be. Well, they should be considering the potential this project has for Papua New Guinea (PNG) not only in the film industry but also in tourism.
The last major movie filmed in the country was Robinson Crusoe which starred Pierce Brosnan, but it did not make much of an impact in the box office nor did it do much for tourism. However, it did make, the Late William Takaku, a cult figure in many acting circles. He also became the first Papua New Guinean to co-star in a Hollywood production and a legend among local actors.
The B-Team will create that opportunity for other budding actors like Stanley Nandex and many others who have signed up for the project but the biggest potential for us lies in the tourism industry. If the film uses exotic locations and gets the attention it deserves, then it could boost tourism to greater heights. The star power of this film is also three times more.
The film will star Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Cynthia Rothrock and Michael Jai White. Now as a martial arts action fan, these names are up there with the legendary Bruce Lee and they are all martial artists too – no posers.
Anyway, the point is we have the opportunity to market the country through this film and we don’t know when another opportunity like this will come again.
