Kingaroy will become the key location for a new movie about the Battle of Long Tan - Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk making the announcement today.

The movie will feature “Vikings” actor Travis Fimmel. 

Danger Close, will be set in Vietnam, and is based on the true story of young men facing the strange, contradictory and brutal truths of war during the Battle of Long Tan.

The two main locations are both in Queensland with Nerang on the Gold Coast being the second location.

The movie is to be produced by award-winning Australian Martin Walsh, a former Australian Special Forces commando.

Walsh is planning an Anzac Day event during the shoot, bringing Long Tan veterans, cast, crew and locals together for a special memorial service.

Danger Close would employ about 120 full time Queensland crew members, offer 30 principal cast and bit-part roles.

Pre-production will start in March, with shooting from the end of April.
