Morocco – movie star central
Ewan McGregor just left Marrakech after filming My Kind of Traitor – a thriller adaptation of the novel by John le Carre about an English couple who while on holiday in Marrakech, meet a shady Russian millionaire and then get into deep trouble.
Tom Hanks has also visited recently, for his movie A Hologram for a King, which was filmed in both Casablanca and Marrakesh, so imagine our surprise when we heard more A-listers had arrived with their entourages to our city! This time it’s everyone’s favourite action hero – Bruce Willis.
Bruce is currently in Marrakesh for the shooting of Barry Levinson’s next movie, Rock the Kasbah – due to premiere in the US in the spring of 2015. He is joined by Kate Hudson, Danny McBride, Scott Caan, Zooey Deschanel, and Leem Lubany who are also in Marrakech to star in the comedy. The story of Rock the Kasbah is about Richie Vance, a past-it music manager who decides to send one of his performing artists on a tour in aid of American troops in Afghanistan.
We heard on the grapevine that Bruce Willis was seen last Tuesday casually taking a walk in Gueliz, hidden partly in a baseball cap but instantly recognisable none-the-less!
