A big Hollywood production is getting ready to begin filming in Thessaloniki.

According to the Governor of Central Macedonia, Apostolos Tzitzikostas, this is the first time Thessaloniki will be a film location for such a big production which includes a cast of world-famous actors, including Antonio Banderas.

The movie… dun dun dun… ‘Barracuda’.

“Don’t be surprised if while you’re drinking coffee on Nikis Street, you suddenly see next to you a well-known director and a very famous Hollywood star,” the governor said.

The production is worth €20 million.

‘Barracuda’ producer Robert Van Norden met with Tzitzikostas on Monday, and announced that film crew will be in the area for five weeks, and filming will take place over thirty days.
