It’s is reported that the film only had two weeks of shooting remaining when writer/director Ol Parker, made the call for production to be paused for at least three months.
Filming has been in locations of the Whitsundays, and recently Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Clonney and Roberts were seen enjoying their time with family over the break but due to cast crew growing concern spread of the virus and being in close contact with them they had to delay the production.
In support of the film, produced by UK film-maker Working Title Films, Universal Pictures, Clooney’s Smokehouse Pictures and Roberts’s Red Om Films, the Federal government provided a $6.4 million grant.
Directed by Ol Parker (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) and produced by Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title, alongside Sarah Harvey and Deborah Balderstone.
The production is expected to inject $47 million in expenditure into the Australian economy and created more than 270 jobs for the Australian cast and crew.
Ticket To Paradise sees Clooney and Roberts as a divorced couple who, on hearing their daughter plans to get married in Bali, race to the island to stop her from ‘making the same mistake they once made’.
