Filming on the modern musical reimagining of Carmen has commenced. Stars Paul Mescal (Normal People) and Melissa Barrera have been spotted in Sydney and remote country NSW locations, which will represent America and Mexico on the big screen. The movie follows Carmen as she is forced to flee her Mexican border village into America. Aidan, a broken ex-marine, is guarding the border with other volunteers, but ends up protecting Carmen and the two flee, one a criminal and one an illegal immigrant. The plot twists and turns and has love and race at it’s core. Read the full movie outline here.
The range of productions filming in Sydney shows the versatility of our City as a location. We have been very busy trying to fill extras roles with a wide range of looks to match the settings and stories of the many international and local productions now using Sydney as a base.
