The amount of momentum the Maltese film industry has gained in the past years continues to ramp up as academy-award winning director Ridley Scott and Oscar-winning ‘Joker’ star Joaquin Phoenix are coming to Malta to shoot a film about Napoleon Bonaparte’s rise.
Phoenix and Scott’s last visit to Malta was for the 2000 blockbuster hit ‘Gladiator’, with Scott having set his eyes on Malta for ‘fantastic Napoleonic courtyard’ which had alluded to in a Hollywood Reporter interview in June.
The movie’s title ‘Kitbag’ is derived from the saying “there is a general’s staff hidden in every soldier’s kitbag” and is set to begin filming in early 2022.

Beyond Phoenix and Scott, the star-studded team also includes cinematographer Dariusz Adam Wolski who has previously worked on the Pirates of the Caribbean films and visited Malta back in May to scout for locations.
