The extinct volcano in Racos, Brasov county has become the ideal location for the “Django” film, the largest international TV production of all times made in Romania. The series is also the one of the biggest cinema productions after “Cold Mountain”, b365.ro reports.
Django is a CANAL+ și Sky Studios production made by Cattleya (Italy), Atlantique Productions (France), in collaboration with Odeon Fiction, StudioCanal and Frame Film (Romania).
The first series of Django, starring Matthias Schoenaerts in the lead role, is a free adaption of the original film, and will have ten episodes to be entirely filmed in Romania.
The movie crew has already built an impressive setting of the New Babylon city in Racos village near Brasov.
“The movie is a re-composition of the original hero, the prodigal soldier returned from the Civil War as a gunman, a vigilante in the Wild West (…) To its origin, the spaghetti western is a mix between an American commercial genre and the Italian Neo-realism. It is about a violent territory, dominated by poverty and injustice. Bandits cowboys, renegade, adventurers, heroes and antiheroes”, Andrei Boncea, producer and Frame Film partner told b365.ro.
