True blue upgrade for film
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”.
