You could bump into several actors because quite a few movies, series will be shot in Budapest this year.
Red Sparrow – Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence will play the role of Putin’s secret service’s attractive spy, whose most effective weapon is her appeal. The movie is directed by Francis Lawrence, who has worked together with Jennifer in The Hunger Games movies. The film is based on onetime CIA agent Jason Matthews’ 2013 bestseller and the gist of the story is that the onetime ballet dancer has to seduce a young CIA agent. Red Sparrow will premiere on the 10th of November, so the shooting will start soon. Rumours have it that the actress has already arrived in Budapest.
The AMC channel bases its new series on Dan Simmons bestseller, which is set in 1847, when a mysterious predator attacks the participants of an artic expedition. The list of producers include names like Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker. Several actors known from Game of Thrones will appear in the series. Rome’s Julius Caesar aka Ciaran Hinds and Outlander’s Tobias Menzies will also fight the predator.
Robin Hood: Origins – Jamie Dornan
You will also get the chance to bump into Mr. Grey because an alternative Robin Hood story will be shot in the streets of Budapest and Dubrovnik. The main role will be played by Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx will be Little John, while Jamie Dornan will play the role of Marian’s husband. The movie will be directed by Otto Bathurst, who is known for the first episode of Black Mirror.
The list is probably going to expand and there will be further premieres, where we can admire the fruit of previous shootings in Budapest. For instance, Blade Runner 2049 will premiere in October, which was, unfortunately, shot in the studios. But, luckily, Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling ventured out into the city. Margot Robbie and Mike Myers also shot Terminal in Budapest, but there’s no premiere date yet.
