Filming of ‘Bourne’ brings €14 million to the capital of Tenerife

The cost of shooting the fifth instalment of the ‘Bourne’ saga in Santa Cruz de Tenerife will be around €350,000 a day, so the turnover during the 40 days of shooting planned could reach €14 million.

This week South Film, responsible for filming, met with a group of residents living in the areas closest to the shooting to explain how it will affect them, particularly at night and on issues related to the arrangements needed in certain roads in the city. It was also noted that the actors will begin work at seven in the evening and it may be extended, as required by the shooting, until five in the morning.

The shooting of the film will begin the second week of September in Plaza de España, la calle Imeldo Serís and El Clavel district, and consist of six evening sessions scheduled for 9, 10, 11, 14, 15 and 16. During those days, there will be some traffic controls, which include the closing the streets in each of these areas to traffic. Because of the nature of the scene, people should stay away for their own safety.

The fifth instalment of the Bourne saga, whose title has not yet been officially released, will have Matt Damon as the main character. In this film, he will be joined by regular cast members actor Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander and actress Julia Stiles, who also returns after take part in the original trilogy.

‘The Bourne Identity’, released in 2002, was the first instalment of a series which continued with ‘The Bourne Supremacy’ (2004), ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ (2007) and ‘The Bourne Legacy’ (2012), the only film in the series in which Matt Damon does not appear.
