PRODUCTION: Glass Tiger 3 begins filming in Hungary

By Zsolt Gyenge

    BUDAPEST: The third sequel of the very successful Hungarian cult-comedy Üvegtigris (Glass Tiger 3) produced by Filmpartners Ltd. (http://www.filmpartners.hu/) will start shooting on June 21 in Hungary. Péter Rudolf, the director, main actor and co-writer of all the three films, promises that this new film will keep the special atmosphere and characters which made a success of the previous movies, but will add more action to it.

    Glass Tiger 3 will have more shooting locations, one of them being the Europa Ship for the 34 day shoot. The budget of the film is 300 million forints (1.1 million Euro) but only 30% of it comes from public funding. The film has backing from MMK (www.mmka.hu).

    The first part of the trilogy was seen by 120,000 spectators in 2001, while Glass Tiger 2 attracted 310,000 spectators in 2006. The third part is slated for release in Hungary by the end of 2010.
