Jolie film takes over Wanderers field
The star power of Angelina Jolie has proven too powerful for A-League team Western Sydney Wanderers, who have been kicked off their training ground for the director's new film Unbroken.
Jolie has secured exclusive access to the Blacktown International Sportspark for two months, according to News Corp Australia.
The Sportspark is home to the Wanderers' training ground.
Wanderers' executive chairman Lyall Gorman says the team has been forced to move training to a nearby football field but says the club is happy to overlook the inconvenience.
"While disappointed with the disruption to our training base during our season, we are understanding of the big picture this potential opportunity brings western Sydney," Gorman told News Corp.
"If what we have heard about the production and the nature of some of the stars coming to Blacktown is true, then it is a good thing for both the local area and the broader region."
Unbroken is the latest in a series of large-scale productions to be filmed in NSW. It is expected to inject millions of dollars into the state's economy and create more than 300 jobs.
