Action! Hollywood Thriller To Start Filming in Jakarta
Jakarta will become part of Hollywood movie history, with the cast and crew of the psychological thriller “The Philosophers” scheduled to begin filming in the Indonesian capital on Saturday.
Producer George Zakk said he believed the upcoming film — starring “Harry Potter” actress Bonnie Wright and “Master and Commander” supporting actor John D’Arcy — was the first Hollywood feature to be shot entirely in Indonesia.
“We will shoot the entire film [here], not any other place,” Zakk said during a press conference on Friday.
The film will also be shot at locations outside of Jakarta, though it was not disclosed where.
Wright, who played Ginny Weasly in the wizard franchise, said the cast had been in the city for a week “acclimatizing themselves to the local conditions to help them get into character.”
