Company Behind New Film Led By Song Joong Ki Denies Reports That Production Has Fallen Through
The production team of “Bogotá” (working title) has denied rumors that the project has fallen through.
On May 11, reports emerged that upcoming crime thriller film “Bogotá” had cut down its staff to a bare minimum. The reports claimed that this was because of concerns that if they could not resume filming in Colombia in June, it would not be possible to complete filming this year, and the situation in the country is difficult to predict due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The production team of “Bogotá” has now responded and stated, “The reports that filming in Korea has fallen through and that the staff has been cut down are not true. We are currently planning to resume filming this summer.”
They continued to add, “As the COVID-19 pandemic continued to spread, we made the decision in March to have the cast and crew wrap up filming overseas and return to Korea out of concerns for their safety. Although filming has been delayed, the situation is beginning to improve in Korea and in some countries overseas, so we currently have plans to resume filming this summer. The project has not fallen through.”
“Bogotá” will be a crime thriller that tells the story of youths who leave Korea for Colombia in the 1990s. The film will be led by Song Joong Ki and is set to be a blockbuster that has 90 percent of its scenes scheduled to be filmed in Bogota, Colombia. Filming had begun in January and the cast and crew were in Colombia when the decision was made to have everyone return to Korea in March due to the growing COVID-19 pandemic.
