Producer Tim Sanders said that the film company would be looking at their insurance to see if they could claim for the damage and losses caused by the weather around Queenstown, according to a Radio New Zealand news bulletin.

Several sets were damaged or swept away by flooding and filming has been delayed by snow in Te Anau and blocked roads in the region. Some areas are now accessible but the rivers are still too high and muddy to be filmed. Schedules have been put back while damaged sets are rebuilt.

The weather in the region is far from settled at present.
