A source of ours in the Bulgarian movie industry gives us some tips now and again and today checked in to update us on the shooting of this movie. Filming is taking place right now in Bulgaria, for a limited time. Arabic scenes will be shot in Sofia from the 13th (today) until the 21st. So eight days of filming is all you should expect of Bulgarian locations for the movie. The only English speaking actor on set for the movie at this time is Patrick Kennedy. Our source speculates that the villains are Iranian terrorists. So is Mike Banning moving from North Koreans to Iranians?
Anyway, the chief terrorist has had members of his family killed in a drone strike, then seeks revenge at the funeral of the British Prime Minister, where multiple high level western targets will be in attendance, including the POTUS. The sets in Bulgaria are also described to ManlyMovie as absolutely huge.
