NEWS FLASH: Channing Tatum's 'G.I. Joe' Will Begin Filming in Prague Soon

Channing Tatum's big budget $170 million, live-action movie 'G.I. Joe' has been filming for a few weeks now in California, and it's my understanding that they will soon wrap their approximately 5 week shoot.

I learned today via the Prague Daily Monitor that the film will also be shooting in the Czech Republic very soon. In May, they will start filming in Prague's Barrandov studios.

Part of the movie's storyline takes place in various locations in Europe where the international 'G.I. Joe' team will fight against the dangerous Cobra Organization that is headed by a well-known arms dealer.

It's been reported that the 'G.I. Joe' film crew will use two existing studios and will also build additional wings on a plot of land on the Barrandov premises.

Other films that used these studios in the recent past include the Hollywood science-fiction film 'Babylon A.D.' with Vin Diesel, 'The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian' (the second film of the "Narnia" series), and the James Bond film, 'Casino Royale'.

'G.I. Joe', where Channing Tatum plays the lead character of Duke Hauser, is scheduled to hit theaters on August 7, 2009.
