The shooting of Luc Besson's (THE FIFTH ELEMENT, LE GRAND BLEU, NIKITA, TRANSPORTER, TAXI) new movie should start tomorrow in Belgrade, in Serbia's PFI film studios. The sf action LOCK OUT will be set in outer space and Guy Pearce will play a man wrongly
The crew has been building huge sets in Belgrade last few months creating the futuristic space prison. Luc Besson will produce LOCK OUT, which will have two directors - Stephen St. Leger and James Mather, through his "Europa Corp" studio, while their partner in Serbia will be "Work In Progress" company which has worked on Ralph Fiennes' movie CORIOLANUS
and THE BROTHERS BLOOM with Rachel Weisz and Adrien Brody which were also shot in Serbia. The budget of the film will be around $30 million.
We've seen young Maggie Grace in KNIGHT AND DAY, TAKEN, THE FOG and she will also appear in THE TWILIGHT saga's sequel BREAKING DAWN.
