Sets for Kingdom Come have already been built in several locations including Lake Benmore in the central South Island and Wellington, but crews have had their Christmas break extended until January 19 as the film executives try to keep the production on track.Whilst I remember, stuff.co.nz also posted some production information on the film over Christmas. The picture above is of one of the sets for Capernaum.
It is understood investors are nervous because US networks have been reluctant to buy the film from Wellington-based production company South Vineyard.
Tim Coddington, an Auckland-based producer who has been working on the film, said the project might still go ahead. "We're just on an extended hiatus while they have some script rewrites done and sort through their financing things."
Casting director Liz Mullane said she was "fully optimistic" that everything would go ahead, but was unable to comment further.
