Javier Bardem comes to Budapest and hopefully Penélope Cruz will accompany him
Posted by Budnews · Feb 11, 2019

The Academy Award-winner actor is filming his latest movie in Hungary and, according to the news, he also brings his wife.

We’re not even surprised anymore if world stars show up in the capital. In the past years Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, Keira Knightley and Will Smith were settled down in Budapest for a couple of weeks, and now our favorite couple, Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem come for a short time.

Bardem shoots his newest film, the latest version of Dune here in Hungary with several world stars: the star of Call Me by Your Name!, the Oscar nominated Timothée Chalament; star of Mission Impossible, Rebecca Ferguson; Disney star Zendaya; Oscar Issac from Star Wars, and Mamma mia! star Stellan Skarsgaard will also show up in the neighborhood.

It’s not even the first time we can be very grateful to the director Denis Villeneuve. He shot Blade Runner 2049 here a few years ago with Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford and Jared Leto, and now this. We don’t know yet, exactly when Bardem arrives, but the rumor says he will bring his wife, the beautiful Penélope Cruz with him. We can only hope that the family stays as long as the Pitt family did…
