Film crew at the reddy

Hills Gazette - - NEWS - Sarah Brookes

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.
