    Probably yes (but they mostly close a few streets, so nobody unauthorised isn't permited to come).

    And it seems that in this movie they even will say it's really Prague. :)

    Not for example as in Casino Royale, where it was like "Miami" International Airport or "Montenegro" small city square (with forgotten sign in background with Czech text :) ).

    Or as in - From Hell, Bourne Identity, Van Helsing, XXX, Shanghi-Knights, Eurotrip, Hostel The Illusionist, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Hellboy etc. :)

    No, I'm not in movie business, I'm only fan of movies.

    Main reason for choosing Prague (or rather whole Czech republic) for filming are:

    - lower costs (especially in USA are very high expenses due union)
    - experienced movie professionals
    - good technical background (Barrandov studios)
    - attractive locations

    I assume they use Czech extras as well as camera crews, etc.

    And costumers, dressers, make-up people, set designers, properties builders, sound mixers, computer graphic studios, transportations, accomodations, catering...

    All these little things which together are probably more expensive than royalties of movie stars.

    On December 2006 Barrandov Studios have officially opened "Max" - a massive new stage. According to studio representatives, in terms of size the new facility is now the largest in Europe at 4,000 square metres. "Max" is also almost 14 metres high, which means it should provide room for even the most demanding of productions.

    I have seen in tv and it's realy impresive stage.

    This is minor reason. Romania or Hungary is cheaper.
    Yes, this is a consequence of two other reasons - the tradition and excellent film schools (like FAMU).

    There is also plenty of excellent stunt men and a lot of people interested in soldier’s play.
    Yes, but not only studios, but also producers of film equipment (telescopic camera cranes are made in Plzeň, for example).
    Attractive for filming (castles, architecture of all West European styles; coutryside scenaries usefull for fairy tailes, historic films, fantasy…; depopulated military areas), but also attractive from the logistic point of view - it’s in the centre of Europe and nearby Germany, the most important European film market, and it’s much cheaper than Germany.

    According to this article it is in Barrandov Studios. There’s still casting for it in this agency.

    I found no reservation of a public place in Prague City Hall’s reports.
