The second week in Budapest was highlighted by the arrival of Bob Hoskins. Everyone here is absolutely thrilled to be working with such a brilliant actor and film icon. The days and nights have been long and hard, but the dailies are looking great and the excitement is building. The upcoming week will be filled with tough location shooting and one major scene with a lot of practical effects. Look for more photos in a few days.
Until then, here are a few pics from the second week of shooting in Budapest...
