Some members of the cast of comedy "Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again", the sequel to Universal's movie hit "Mamma Mia", are soon to come to the island of Vis. Filming will take place on several locations and Vis will have a role of Greek island Kalokairi. The main cast for the movie sequel will stay the same - Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Amanda Seyfried, but the director will now be Ol Parker. Filming is supposed to last until the middle of October.
The most expected actors are surely Merly Streep and Pierce Brosnan, but it’s still a secret if they will come to Vis. However, it seems that Pierce Brosnan already visited the island in July – reports Jutarnji.hr.
According to their sources, ex James Bond landed on the heliodrome in the middle of summer, next to King George III fortress, from where he was taken to a yacht anchored next to the uninhabited island of Budikovac. Brosnan then continued cruising with his family along the Adriatic coast, Italian side, enjoying the blue seas of Sardinia and Corsica. Everybody hope that he’ll visit the island again.
EVERYTHING IS READY
Although yachts will certainly be available to Hollywood stars if needed, hosts from the island of Vis are proud to point out that their accommodation is good enough for the celebrities. The actors will stay in luxurious island villas.
It is expected that celebrities will go to sets with fast and comfortable ten-meter speedboats with luxurious interior. Their daily rental could cost up to 1000 Euros. According to Jutarnji.hr, nobody likes to talk about it on the island, but it seems that everybody involved in the movie are more than happy with the money they will make. Since this is a musical, besides the "ordinary" extras, production was also searching for those with dance skills. Dancers will get 800 kuna per day, while professionals will be paid with 1200 kuna.
The sequel of this famous musical will hit the theatres ten years after the first part – July 20th 2018. First movie was a big hit and earned over 600 million dollars.
