20 Aug, 2012 MTA brand ambassador Jessica Watson embarks on new course

MTA - Mobile Travel Agents’ brand ambassador and sailing legend Jessica Watson is set to become a star of the silver screen following an announcement yesterday by Paramount Pictures Australia.

The company has unveiled its plans to film the movie ‘True Spirit’ in in Sydney and on the Gold Coast in 2013 with distribution to take place in Australia and New Zealand towards the end of the year.

On May 15 2010, arriving back in Sydney three days before her 17th birthday, Jessica Watson became the youngest person ever to sail solo around the world non-stop and unassisted.

In common with the recent successful releases ‘Mao’s Last Dancer’ and ‘Red Dog’, ‘True Spirit’ brings a story of the triumph of the human spirit, detailing Jessica's successful struggle to achieve her dream of circumnavigating the globe.

Paramount Pictures Vice President of Australia and New Zealand, Mike Selwyn said the company was delighted to be bringing Jessica Watson’s story to the big screen where it belongs.

“This is a wonderful story of courage, perseverance and triumph that will appeal to all audiences,” he said.

Jessica Watson said it was an honour to have a feature film made about her.

“It’s all quite surreal and very exciting! It will be interesting to watch how a film is made. I’m looking forward to working closely with the production team and Paramount in my capacity as a consultant on the project, she said.
