Roll 'em!

Here we are on Republic Square again. That's the National Museum on the left, the statue of Prince Mihail in the middle, and the National Theater in the background. The black 'Baltimore Police' car is a prop for the filming of John Cusack's new film, The Raven, depicting the final days of Edgar Allan Poe, which is being filmed partly here in Belgrade. If you click on the link, you'll see that the actor has been enjoying Belgrade's well-known nightlife.

ADDENDUM: Below is a photo I snapped last Saturday when I saw the film crew, and this time the actor (seated), in Kalemegdan Park, waiting for 'action'.

Neat old ride. Oh fun to be around a filming.

Fascinating post. Love that first photograph...so sharp and so interesting...

I think this is a movie I shall have to see.

Love your snap of Cusak sitting in the park. I've heard that making movies is mostly hours of sitting around waiting for a few seconds of action!

Have a great day!

Odd .. Baltmore shots done in Serbia .. hey I bet its a lot cheaper than actually shooting in Baltimore

Exciting for you and for the cinephiles.

Picking up on what Daryl wrote, it is also no doubt far more safe to do the filming in Belgrade than in modern crime-ridden and corrupt Baltimore!
