Film crew at the reddy
TRAFFIC slowed and onlookers gathered as the quiet Hills village of Darlington was taken over by a film crew this week, with speculation rife it was related to the hugely successful Australian movie Red Dog.
Witnesses reported up to 40 production crew outside Perrella’s Cafe and the old Darlington Dental Office on Owen Road shooting scenes, with actors and red cloud kelpies, including puppies, on set. Red Dog producer Nelson Woss was tight-lipped about the filming but said both Red
Dog movies would be rereleased before Christmas.
Mr Woss adopted the canine star of Red Dog, Koko, who died from congestive heart disease at the age of seven in 2012 in Perth.
Koko became famous for his role as Red Dog.
