Red Sonia

The first film, which already started filming two weeks ago, is “Red Sonia”, a science fiction and action film, which will be a big “bet” for the production, as special and impressive effects will be used in its studio Heat.

It should also be noted that the post production of the film will take place entirely in Thessaloniki.

For “Red Sonia”, which is a remake of 1995, more than 100 jobs have been created, with Greek workers, at a cost of 5 million euros.

Dirty Angels

The second film that will start shooting in Thessaloniki is an action film called “Dirty Angels”. In fact, it stars the highly popular Eva Green and is directed by Martin Campbell, who has directed two James Bond films among others.

In the story of the film, we have a United States military unit, which consists exclusively of women, that will operate in a mission in Afghanistan.

25 million euros in Thessaloniki

The cost of the production amounts to 35 million euros, of which 25 will be spent in Thessaloniki, since a part of the scenes will be shot in Morocco. Post production will also take place in Thessaloniki.

The cameras will start recording in the first ten days of December for about three months. Filming will take place in a studio in Thermi but also in areas of Thessaloniki, such as Asvestochori, Perea and wider areas in the west. Also, scenes will be filmed in mountainous parts of Halkidiki.

For “Dirty Angels” more than 250 jobs will be created.
