New official publicity photos from Netflix and Skydance Media’s new action blockbuster “6 Underground” have gone online today at The Khaleej Times as filming on the Michael Bay-directed feature got underway in Abu Dhabi.
Bay, Ryan Reynolds and the rest of the 300+ cast and crew will spend a month filming in the United Arab Emirates at four locations, including Liwa desert, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah. In a statement, Bay says:
“Abu Dhabi is a unique place to make a movie, with a lot of great looks. It’s got the diversity and architecture I need in front of the camera — plus the professional facilities, crew and infrastructure to back it up. I’m very excited to be shooting here over the next few weeks.”
The story follows a group of six men and women who team up to fight villains, with each of the team known only by their numerical code-names. Reynolds stars as ‘One,’ Dave Franco is ‘Six’ while Ben Hardy, Corey Hawkins, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Lior Raz and Adria Arjona and co-star.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick penned the script for the $125 million-budgeted film which has been shooting in Italy. Bay, Ian Bryce, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger are producing the film which will be released on Netflix.
