This year, the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism of Vietnam has given its blessing to the production of three international films in Vietnam.
At the beginning of January, the French production company Les Films du Worso launched their new project.
In order to get ready for the production of the new movie, “End of the World,” the company’s technical crew has traveled to Hanoi and the northern regions, such as Cao Bang and Bac Kan.
Before relocating to Hai Phong City, the cast and crew of the next film, directed by Guillaume Nicloux, will visit the cities of Ninh Binh and Da Nang.
In addition to that, they will travel to the provinces of Quang Ninh and Nam Dinh.
Nicloux is an accomplished actor, director, and writer of scripts. The 2015 Cannes Film Festival recognized his film Valley of Love with a nomination.
The film is slated to be shot from the beginning of March to the end of May.
This week in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnamese-American filmmaker Stephane Gauger kicked up production on his newest film project, titled The Oath of Love.
The crew of the film will go around the Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province to see the various tourist attractions there.
The filming will also take place in Ho Chi Minh City as well as the provinces of Bac Lieu, An Giang, Kien Giang, Tra Vinh, Vinh Long, and Long An located in the Cuu Long (Mekong River) Delta.
This month, StarVN, a private film studio based in HCM City, collaborated on a film project with Yuttana Suntivong, a director originating from Thailand.
Between the months of March and December, the production crew, which includes photography director Decha Srimanta, will be located in Can Tho, Da Nang, and Thua Thien-Hue.
They will undertake research in preparation for the production of the romantic film Story of Swan Lake, which is based on a screenplay written by Vietnamese and Thai authors.
The filming of “Kong: Skull Island” took place in Ninh Binh Province in 2016, with Jordan Charles Vogt-Roberts, a Hollywood director and screenwriter, and his crew in attendance.
For the convenience of the film team, a production facility spanning 25 hectares of land was constructed in the Hoa Lu District in Ninh Binh.
The scenes were shot in Trang An, Van Long, and Tam Coc in the province of Ninh Binh before going on to Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Rao Nan River, and Yen Phu Lake in the province of Quang Binh, and finally Ha Long Bay in the province of Quang Ninh.
Filming in Vietnam reportedly cost approximately 160 million USD, or about ten percent of the movie’s overall budget. This information comes from an unauthorized source.
It is currently being shown in theaters all around the world under the title Kong: Skull Island. The film stars Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson, and Toby Kebbell. The sale of tickets in Vietnam has brought in approximately 4.6 million US dollars.
“Kong: Skull Island” has been seen in theaters by a large number of people all around the world. According to Ha Quang Long, a senior official of Quang Ninh Province, “We believe that filming in destinations in Vietnam is an excellent opportunity to introduce the beauty of the country to the rest of the globe.”
