‘Gentlemen’ starts its engines in Prague

Connery pic to begin lensing Wednesday

PRAGUE — “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” began principal photography in Prague on Wednesday. The Fox picture’s start was delayed two days due to illness of star Sean Connery. Some background photography had begun June 28.

Prague is once more hosting a film based on a comicbook. “From Hell” and “Blade 2” were both shot in Prague, with “Hell Boy” headed to Prague by the end of the year.

Steve Norrington (“Blade”) directs the film, set in Victorian England, and Mike Nelson is line producer.

Local production services are going through Flying Pictures, making its first appearance on the Prague international film scene, with Prague-based independent producer Michelle Weller overseeing the Czech side.

“League” is bypassing both Barrandov and fledgling Prague Studios for its studio shoots, relying instead on some of the many empty warehouse spaces available throughout the city.
