Production on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a new Marvel series slated to premiere on Disney+ later this year, is moving to the Czech Republic over the next few days for a brisk three-week shoot that wraps on March 25.
Details on the local production of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, including which locations in Prague or elsewhere in the Czech Republic shooting may take place in, are being kept under wraps but should become apparent over the coming weeks.
Extras casting for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is being handled by local agency Extrafilms, who also worked with the major productions Carnival Row and The Wheel of Time, both still shooting in Prague through this spring.
Currently filming in Atlanta, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was expected to head to Puerto Rico, but that shoot was cancelled due to earthquakes in the area.
It’s unclear if Prague locations might serve as a replacement, but the production may have to deal with another threat. Coronavirus has already delayed the production of the latest Mission: Impossible movie in Italy, and the situation is currently developing in the Czech Republic, where five people have been diagnosed with the virus.
In The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will reprise their roles as Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, the titular superheroes who appeared in previous Marvel films and most notably the Captain America movies.
Daniel Brühl will also reprise his role as the villainous Zemo from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, while Desmond Chiam, Miki Ishikawa, Adepero Oduye, Wyatt Russell, and Emily VanCamp also feature among the series’ primary cast.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is being directed by Kari Skogland (The Handmaid’s Tale, Fifty Dead Men Walking), with John Wick’s Derek Kolstad listed among the staff writers.
Six 60-minute episodes are currently in production, and slated to premiere on the Disney+ streaming service in August 2020.
The Czech Republic, however, is expected to first receive the Disney+ service in 2021.
