Outside the Wire will film on location in the Hungarian capital for eight weeks from early August, with Mikail Hafstrom directing from a screenplay by Arash Amel, Rowan Athale and Rob Yescombe.

The project comes from 42 Films, Automatik and Inspire Entertainment. According to a Deadline report, Mackie plays a drone pilot tasked with entering a deadly militarised zone to locate a doomsday device.

Budapest is a major production hub, frequently hosting big-budget films and high-end TV dramas, including Blade Runner 2049, Dune, Emerald City and The Last Kingdom.

Hungary offers two world-class filming facilities – Origo Film Studios and Korda Studios which, along with a 30% tax rebate scheme and a large pool of experienced crew, is an appealing factor for producers.
