Orlando Bloom to film Carnival Row in the Czech Republic
Orlando Bloom will film Amazon’s eight-part series Carnival Row in the Czech Republic.
The drama is set in a neo-Victorian city, where the citizens live alongside fantastical mythical creatures which have been forced to flee their war-torn land. Tensions rise between the groups, as Bloom’s police inspector investigates a series of murders.
Carnival Row comes from Legendary Television and Amazon Studios, with Paul McGuigan and Guillermo del Toro reportedly listed to direct.
The Czech Republic has long been seen as a very film-friendly destination for producers and filmmakers with an expert crew base, world-class studios and a 20% tax rebate on production costs.
Recent productions to have filmed in the country include feature film Anthropoid with Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy and the hefty historical ten-part TV drama Britannia, for Amazon Studios and Sky 1 in the UK.
