Original post 4 October: We’ve heard that Wonder Woman is to be filmed partly in Tenerife, and some will also have heard that another major film, Rambo V, will be shot in Tenerife, and today the Tenerife Cabildo has confirmed the locations for the shoot, which will take around three weeks after it starts within a few days now. Tenerife President Carlos Alonso said at the presentation that “Tenerife is once again an international benchmark for filming thanks to its wonderful natural conditions and the fiscal incentives available for producers, as well as for local businesses which become involved in the shoots”.
Island tourism chief Alberto Bernabé said that his department’s work, through the Tenerife Film Commission, is key to these major movies that are being filmed here. The confirmed locations for Rambo V are Abades, the Centro Ambiental de Arico, and areas of Santa Cruz. It is not known whether the film’s star, Sylvester Stallone, will actually be in Tenerife during filming here.
