Bruce Willis Arrives in Alicante
by Olivia Elson on Tuesday, September 14, 2010
A-List actor Bruce Willis has arrived on Spain’s Valencian coast to begin shooting for his latest action film.
‘The Cold Light of Day’ is to be shot entirely in Spain, at various locations in and around Alicante. Much of the production team are Spanish and the cast includes some Spanish names too. Óscar Jaenada and Verónica Echegui are to star in the film along with Caroline Goodall, Sigourney Weaver, Emma Hamilton and Henry Cavill, amongst others.
The film is directed by French-born Mabrouk El-Mechri, and based on an original screenplay written by Scott Wiper, John Petro and Richard Price. It is a thriller about a young American (played by Henry Cavill) whose family is kidnapped while holidaying in Spain. The protagonist has just a few hours to find his family and uncover the connection between their disappearance and the secrets his father (Bruce Willis) has kept hidden for years.
Plans for filming include ten weeks in Valencia’s coastal towns followed by additional time in the studios at Ciudad de la Luz in Alicante. Some of the sites set to hit the big screens include Dénia, Moraira and Jávea, where crews descended on the small cove of La Granadella (pictured below) to shoot some action scenes.
