The first day of filming of the latest Robin Hood blockbuster started today in Dubrovnik and the sets were a hive of activity. Taron Egeron dressed as Robin Hood arrived with Eve Hewson, who plays Maid Marion, on set in the morning and almost immediately started filming in the harbour area in Dubrovnik.Taron Egerton and Eve Hewson exchanged a gentle kiss, although we have to add this was part of the scene.
Over a thousand extras are involved in the filming and the ancient city walls and harbour reassembled a scene from the Crusades. Horses thundered over the cobbled streets as the scene from Robin Hood took shape. Filming will last until the 6th of March and all of the main actors, apart from Jamie Dornan, are already in Dubrovnik. Jamie Foxx, or Little John, is also expected on set later this afternoon. This is the most expšensive film production ever to take place in Dubrovnik, with an estimated $100 million to be spent on marketing alone.
