Filming of the movie “The Unbearable Weight of a Massive Talent” starring Nicholas Cage and Pedro Pascal continued in the wider Dubrovnik region yesterday with a car chase in Konavle.
Cage (56) is playing himself in the upcoming movie which is set to be released in the spring of 2021. A few days ago the main promenade in the picturesque seaside town of Cavtat was the backdrop and yesterday it was a winding country road in the Konavle countryside. In what appeared to be a car chase scene, Cage and Pascal, had two black motorbikes in their rear-view mirror.
Instead of a vintage Porsche, which was used during filming in Cavtat, yesterday the vehicle was a little more suitable for the vineyard lined roads of Konavle, a Land Rover. Filming took place near the village of Čilipi, within earshot of the Dubrovnik Airport.
Pascal is no stranger to Dubrovnik having been a part of the HBO series Game of Thrones, he portrayed Oberyn Martell in the fourth season and Dubrovnik acted as a backdrop for an iconic fight scene. Recently the Chilean born actor has starred in the hugely popular Disney+ project Star Wars: The Mandalorian, where Pascal plays Din Djarin.
