Part of the most expensive project of the Netflix streaming service, the film The Gray Man, is being shot in Prague until July 18. Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans play in a CIA thriller. The production is to cost up to $ 200 million, in terms of approximately 4.3 billion crowns.
Filming will continue on Palach Square in front of Rudolfinum, on Republic Square and on Dvořák’s Embankment. The city district of Prague 1 has established website, where it provides information on locations, possible traffic restrictions and alternative parking options.
“The production cooperated in the preparations with the City Hall, the City Hall of Prague 1, the Prague Transport Company, the police and the fire brigade, and the amount of about five million crowns supported the development of Prague 1 through fees and additional contributions,” said the State Fund for Cinematography.
Foreign crews to the Czech Republic attract film incentives. In June, actor Adam Sandler appeared in Prague and plays a full-length comparison of Netflix based on the book Spaceman of Bohemia. Orlando Bloom also recently returned to Prague to shoot the second series of the Carnival Row series produced by Amazon.
