GRIMM BEGINS IN PRAGUE
According to Screen Daily, director Terry Gilliam's $75 million Brothers Grimm starts its 17-week shoot in Prague Monday, with Matt Damon, Heath Ledger, Lena Heady, Peter Stormare and Jonathan Pryce starring.
The shoot will travel around the Czech Republic for the next two weeks, with Czech castle- and cathedral towns such as Krivoklat, Kacina, Kutna Hora and Ledec doubling for the 19th-century German countryside.
The MGM and Dimension film features Damon and Ledger as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, the fairy-tale brothers, who in Gilliam's version are 'Jake and Will,' two 19th-century con artists who meet their match when they encounter an actual curse.
Robin Williams is no longer on board, and recent negotiations with Nicole Kidman for a small part failed to pan out.
