FILM crews have once again visited the Redlands, with Paramount Pictures shooting at Mount Cotton for feature film Monster Problems.

Filming took place at Sirromet Winery on April 4, 5 and 8. 

It follows filming of crime drama film Reef Break in the Redlands earlier this year, as well as Netflix series Tidelands in 2018 and Aquaman in 2017. 

Monster Problems - a coming of age film about a young man living in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monsters - reportedly stars Dylan O'Brien from television series Teen Wolf, Michael Rooker from Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Infinity War's Ariana Greenblatt.

Its crew includes Stranger Things producers Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen, as well as Insurgent writer Brian Duffield.

Monster Problems will be the first production to film in Brisbane's new $12 million fit-for-purpose Screen Queensland Studios, based in Hemmant.

Screen Queensland chief Tracey Vieira said the production would create about 260 job opportunities for Queensland crew and provide four attachment opportunities to train Queenslanders in areas of skills shortage.

"Attracting Monster Problems provides enormous direct economic benefits with the entire production on track to spend more than $29 million directly in Queensland and utilise hundreds of small businesses in the region spanning facilities, equipment purchases and rental suppliers, construction materials, transport, catering, make-up and equipment hire," Ms Vieira said.

"As well as filming at the Screen Queensland Studios, Monster Problems will also showcase Queensland's stunning and diverse locations to an international audience and we'll maximise tourism opportunities available during the filming and when released in cinemas around the world."

Monster Problemsis the second Paramount Pictures movie to be shot in Queensland in the last year, with a live-action version of Dora the Explorer filmed on the Gold Coast in mid-2018.
