Long-time reader....yadda yadda...:-) Just wanted to let you know some details about some of the filming locations for The Three Musketeers 3D by Paul W.S. Anderson. Now I am aware of the infamous filmography of this director, but I am actually looking forward to this. Especially because one of my favorite actors, Christoph M. Waltz of Inglorious Basterds, is involved next to Orlando Bloom. The shooting will start in September and will take place in several locations in Germany or to be more specific in Bavaria, which is supposed to star as 17th century Paris. My hometown of Wuerzburg will play a major role in the shooting of this movie. The crew are currently casting 2.500 extras for the shoot and I have attached some pictures from the three main shooting locations to give your readers an overall idea about the setting they are going for with this movie: 1.) The "Festung", a medieval castle built in the 13th century, nestled on top of a beautiful hill overlooking the oldtown of Würzburg.
2.) The "Residenz", a former residence of the Wuerzburg prince-bishops, is one of the most important baroque palaces in Europe. It was completed in 1780. The "Kaisersaal", the biggest and most pompous hall of the Residenz, will be used to shoot the big ballroom scene according to my information.
3.) The "Alte Mainbrücke" (=Old Bridge over the river Main) is one of the sightseeing highlights in the Wuerzburg oldtown and will also be used in the movie.
