Ghosts of War to film in Bulgaria
Supernatural psychological thriller Ghosts of War starring Australian actor Brenton Thwaites is set to film in Bulgaria in the spring.
The feature is due to begin principal photography in the country mid-March with filming set to run for around six weeks. The screenplay is by Eric Bress, whose writing credits include The Butterfly Effect and The Final Destination; he will also direct the movie.
Ghosts of War follows a small band of Second World War soldiers who are sent to hold a French chateau as the war is drawing to an end. The house, which was previously occupied by Nazi forces, proves more of a terrifying experience for the men than the battlefield.
Joe Simpson, D. Todd Shepherd and Shelley Madison produce.
Bulgaria is an increasingly popular destination for international filmmakers and TV producers.
Nu Boyana Studios in Sofia, owned by LA-based Millennium Films, has helped raise the profile of the country as an attractive filming location, as it has hosted high-profile projects like Hunter Killer, an action feature starring Gary Oldman and Gerard Butler which filmed there in the summer of 2016.
Although Bulgaria has no official tax incentives, it does have several co-production treaties in place and offers good value for money to budget-holders. For more on filming in Bulgaria, head over to our production guide.
