Steven Spielberg's 'Terra Nova' to Film in Australia


The new series which has the budget of $4 million per episode is taking the filming Down Under because it has the right climate and economic incentives.

Steven Spielberg is returning to prehistoric times - he is heading Down Under to shoot a new dinosaur epic for the small screen. The director, who is famous for his blockbuster "Jurassic Park" movies, will work with the extinct reptiles again in "Terra Nova" - an expensive series which will see scientists return to prehistoric Earth.

Spielberg has chosen south-east Queensland in Australia as the location for his new show, which will air on the FOX network and is reported to cost a staggering $4 million-per-episode. Fox Television executive vice president of production, Jim Sharp, says, "Queensland had the right look, climate and terrain, a vibrant production community and attractive economic incentives. We are very excited to be shooting our first production there."

Irish actor Jason O'Mara is reportedly being lined up to play the show's lead.
