"I promise to return to Croatia," said Oscar-winning Morgan Freeman nearly nine years ago, when he first visited Croatia. As things stand now, the 81-year-old Freeman should arrive in Croatia in early April as part of the star-studded cast for the sequel of "The Hitman's Bodyguard.”
As yet there is no official confirmation that Freeman will join the crew when they start filming in Rovinj in April, however the renowned IMDB, the largest movie website, has confirmed that the legend of Hollywood will join Salma Hayek, Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson on set in Croatia for filming of “The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard.”
Filming in Rovinj start on the 4th of April and will last until the 1st of May. This sequel movie is based on the Amalfi Coast in Italy, which will obviously "played" by Rovinj.
Nine years ago Morgan Freeman was in Dubrovnik as an honorary guest of the fifth edition of the Dubrovnik Film Meeting. He spent his time in the exclusive Villa Agava and went on a boat trip to explore the beauty of the Dubrovnik archipelago in the company of host Goran Štrok.
