  • The novel is French and the story is linked to the french culture and they decide to shoot the movie in England and Hungary??? I think it is irrelevant. Too bad I was hoping to see Rob for a second time. Anyway, good website

    I’ve read a draft of the script and I cannot wait to see this film! As for the location shooting choice, I think Budapest will probably be a little cheaper to shoot in than Paris… Also, it has to have a certain era-look, so good choice. Thanks for starting this website, I look forward to all of the updates and since shooting starts Sunday there should be plenty!

    Hi guys, I love your blog a lot, thanks for starting it. I hesistate a lot weather to go to Budapest or not in April. It will be my only occasion to see Rob at least from a distance but I wonder if it’s possible at all to see actors while they film. I mean are they available at all for fans? I’m not a crazy fan, I love and respect Rob as a great actor he is and wish him all the best and I just wanted to get a glimpse of this gorgeous man. So what shall I do?
