One Down, Four to Go

We've finished the first of five weeks of filming in Budapest. The weather has been beautiful, except for a bit of rain on Saturday, and we have had a very productive week. Jamie wanted to shoot most of the action sequences early, so we spent a lot of time out in the forests northwest of Budapest. We pulled of a stunt sequence that should be quite impressive involving Dorff and O'Hara's characters fighting in a moving car, and we enlisted the aid of a Hungarian Swat team for a shoot out in the woods. Here are a few pics from the first week...
