Greece is becoming a filming hub.
Netflix announced that they secured the exclusive rights to Luca Guadagnino’s movie ‘Born to Be Murdered’ starring actor John David Washington and Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander.
The new movie which is based on the book of the same name published in 1945 by Dennis Allan, was shot in Greece last year.
‘Born to Be Murdered’ is set in Athens and the Epirus region of Greece and tells of a vacationing couple, played by Washington and Vikander, who fall prey to a violent conspiracy with tragic consequences, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film is directed by Ferdinando Cito Filomarino, who made his debut with the feature film ‘Antonia’.
According to the National Center of Audiovisual Media and Communication (EKOME), a series of tax incentives introduced to entice film and television production companies to shoot their projects in Greece, appear to be paying off.
