South Korea’s port city, Busan, will be used to film a huge chase scene in Marvel’s “Black Panther” film set to be released next year.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, “Black Panther” features a king who takes over the African nation of Wakanda after the murder of his father.
“The shoot, which will involve some 150 cars and more than 700 people, is a car chase scene with the protagonist and the villain,” said a representative from the local production service company, Mr. Romance Film. “It will also involve helicopters and guns and may cause noise as well as traffic restrictions.”
When Marvel filmed part of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” in Seoul, South Korea in 2015, the studio gave up on shooting at some locations which had been leaked in advance. Mr. Romance Film handled Korean production of “Ultron” and Netflix’s “Sense 8.”
The film is set for worldwide release February 16, 2018.
