DRONES, STAMPEDES, GUNSHOTS, & MANY 'OLES'
AS 'DOMINO' FILMS AT LA PLAZA DE TOROS IN ALMERIA


A couple of articles from Almería this morning, with the help of Google translation:

Marta Rodríguez, La Voz de Almería

Days of ten or eleven hours. More than 200 extras. A technical team formed by about 40 people under Brian De Palma (including José Luis Alcaine, Almodóvar's cinematographer with five Goya awards). A scene filmed with drones, stampedes, gunshots and many 'oles'. Welcome to the shoot of 'Domino', in the Plaza de Toros de Almería.

These are the brushstrokes of the day-to-day shooting of this European production action thriller, which began filming on Monday in the Vilches avenue, where the actors are taking part: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Carice van Houten, cast partners in 'Game of Thrones' series in which they play Jaime Lannister and the witch Melisandre.

According to LA VOZ, one of the most important scenes of the film, a terrorist attack, with many special effects, occurred during a Bullfight celebration with tickets and runners out of public.

What direct witnesses tell of the shooting would not squeak about the plot of 'Domino', which will tell the story of a Copenhagen policeman who, with the help of another colleague, will follow in the footsteps of a man of Arab origin (who is played by Ibrahim Goush) responsible for murdering his partner. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this persecution, which will also involve the CIA, will take the protagonists from northern Europe to "sun-drenched landscapes of Spain." Petter Skavlan, writer of the screenplay of the film 'Kon-Tiki', is the person in charge of the script.

The team deals daily with the complications of having to coordinate so many extras, who have to repeat over and over again the plans of that scene of action in which a stampede takes place.

The production - in which the name of Tate Aráez stands out as head of locations (a great connoisseur of the province after touring with the team of 'Game of Thrones') - has required the participation of Almerian bullfighters Ruiz Manuel and El César, who along with Alberto Cámara, the will interpret the roll of proxies. The matador Sergio Roldán will also have a small role.

The Port and the Airport could be other of the chosen locations for this film that has placed De Palma back behind a camera five years after 'Passion'.


D. Martínez, Diario de Almería

"It is impressive to see Brian de Palma crossing the bullring of the Plaza de Toros de Almería". That is the affirmation of a woman who participates as an extra in the film Domino that the American director rolls these days in the Bullring of Almería...

These days, Brian De Palma makes his normal life during the day, and at night he is shooting in the Plaza de Toros. They are marathon sessions, where everything is supervised by the director of the film, and where the scenes are repeated and repeated. De Palma is a demanding director and he likes to do things well, so until he has the shot he carries in his mind, he will not stop.

During the nights until the wee hours of the morning some 300 extras have occupied the 8th slope of the Coso of the Avenida de Vilches. A bullfight takes place, although there is an event that mars the celebration. A terrorist posing as a soda seller kills a person from the public. The figuration chosen for this sequence has appeared these days dressed as if they were to enjoy a bullfight.

The film, a thriller starring Carice Van Houten and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, has already begun in Antwerp (Belgium) and is a European co-production involving the French company Backup, the Spanish production company Maestranza, the Danish studios Schonne Film, and the Belgian producers of Zilvermeer...

After the bullring, filming will continue at the port and airport of Almeria and there will be scenes to be shot in Adra.

Name: "Lear"

Guy Pearce is on the IMDB cast list, which confirms my guess that there should be a "big" star as the "traitor". But then again, Lights Out's IMDB Trivial section mentions Adam Sandler as part of the cast haha

Guy Pearce and Carice van Houten fell in love and have a child together-- could be that he is around and someone jumped the gun, or perhaps he is indeed in the film. Who knows?

Name: "Lear"

I doubt it's true either. It'd be weird to be cast him as the "villain" in mid-shooting, but it'd be also strange not to have promoted him sooner. He's a feather in their cap, so why aren't they flaunting his name?

Although I believe they both starred in another Backup Films entitled Brimstone last year, so nothing is certain. So far the Backup Films producers have managed to sneak in their biggest stars in this project, so who knows what they can do.
