NZ millions invested in British movie


The New Zealand Film Commission is putting millions of taxpayer dollars into a movie set in Edwardian England and says it will boost Kiwi talent, especially up-and-coming director Toa Fraser.

The commission says its stake in the movie Dean Spanley - believed to be $3 million to $4 million - will be good for New Zealand film.

But even assuming the $15 million movie is successful, it marks a shift in the old calculations about the value of the movie business.
