Apparently, the Child 44-shoot wraps on Saturday! It’s been fun! I hope they can edit it quickly yet perfectly so we get to see this film sooner rather than later.
Filming wraps September 21 on Child 44 after 71 days of filming in the Czech Republic.
Produced by Ridley Scott, the film is an adaptation of Tom Rob Smith’s novel of the same name, based on the true story of a serial killer in the former Soviet Union.
Tom Hardy stars as a state security agent investigating a series of gruesome child murders. Other key cast members include Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Vincent Cassel.
Czech locations stand in for Moscow. The production shot at Barrandov Studios and on live locations including Prague’s National Theatre, National Museum, Rudolfinum, Ministry of Transport and in the city’s underground metro tunnels. Of the roughly 300-member crew, 256 were Czech film professionals.
Director Daniel Espinosa worked with DOP Oliver Wood, who filmed the Bourne trilogy and numerous other action-thrillers, including Die Hard 2.
