BON JOVI WAR MOVIE SET TO BOOST TOURISM
(JAN. 25) WENN - SIXTH - HOLLYWOOD, SHOWBIZ & PEOPLE NEWS - IN MALTA From WENN news editor KEVIN LEWIN in London
JON BON JOVI and HARVEY KEITEL are set to boost tourism in Malta thanks to the Mediterranean holiday island's offshore water tanks.
Sea-faring movies such as RAISE THE TITANIC and pirate flop CUTTHROAT ISLAND have already made use of Malta's famous deep-water tanks - which allow movie makers to shoot from dry land with an open-sea backdrop.
And now Bon Jovi, Keitel and MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY's latest movie project - war film U-571 is set to make use of a new underwater facility in Kalkara.
A Maltese Embassy spokesman says, "The tanks have become big tourist spots because people love to see where and how the big films are shot. We hope U-571 has the same impact."
