Filming of 'The Titan', a major sci-fi adventure starring Avatar's Sam Worthington and Ruth Wilson and directed by German director Lennart Ruff, begins in February 2016.

Gran Canaria is a major setting for the British-funded movie and filming is scheduled over two months. 

The Titan is set in the future in a world short of food and on the brink of war and is about a military family's journey to a NATO base to take part in a ground-breaking experiment about genetic evolution in space. Writer Arash Amel has described it as, “at its core, a love story that is set in the pioneering edge of space exploration, a world of fear and wonder”.

The film's Gran Canaria budget hasn't been announced, bu the Gran Canaria Film Commission is understandably excited. The Cabildo's  Consejero de Desarrollo Económico del Cabildo de Gran Canaria, Raúl García Brink, said that it would "improve Gran Canaria's competitiveness and positioning as a location for large-scale film productions".
