Filming started at Mladá Boleslav prison, 40 miles from Czech capital Prague, and will continue in the Central Bohemia region of the country over the next few months.

Prague is a European production hub and regularly stands in for other parts of Europe. Taika Waititi recently doubled the city for period Berlin for his satirical feature Jojo Rabbit and post-war film The Aftermath used Prague as a stand-in for Hamburg.

Agnieszka Holland recently made period movie Mr Jones in Poland, focussing on the 1930s-set true story of a Welsh journalist who exposed Ukraine’s Great Famine in western media, a mass starvation caused by the policies of Joseph Stalin.

The filmmaker also directed two episodes of Netflix’s Polish alternate-history drama 1983.
