Wallaga Lake bridge in the movies

A TEAM of film production people, extras and classic vehicles descended on Wallaga Lake bridge on Tuesday to film a scene for Angelina Jolie directed movie “Unbroken”.

Working on site were about 13 film and production people, about 10 extras, as well as an old car and army truck.

The scene in movie will portray two American prisoners of war being moved between Japanese prison camps and present on set on Tuesday was one of the movie’s stars Jack O’Connell, who plays the principal character Louis Zamperini.

Matt Carroll from Screen NSW told ABC Southeast the bridge was selected because of its resemblance to bridges in Japan during World War II where the film is set.

While the film is being shot in Queensland, the Wallaga bridge was chosen because of its distinctive hump in the middle was actually identified in the “Real Scout” database used by movie producers.

Helping out on the set were the boys from Bermagui Bait and Tackle, which supplied boats to get around and get water shots.
