True blue up­grade for film

Pilbara News - - Front Page - Louise Alling­ham

Be­fore thou­sands of Kar­ratha res­i­dents flocked to the Quar­ter to see the world pre­miere of Red Dog: True Blue, the film’s pro­ducer Nel­son Woss an­nounced a full re­fur­bish­ment of the area around the Red Dog statue in Dampier.

“We’d like to put some­thing back and leave a legacy of both films,” he said.

“(Vis­i­tors) will be able to sit down and have a pic­nic and take it all in in a spe­cial up­graded place.”

Mr Woss said the film back­ers would be work­ing closely with Rio Tinto, the Pil­bara De­vel­op­ment Com­mis­sion, the City of Kar­ratha and the Dampier Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion to make the area into “ground zero for all things Red Dog”.
