Budapest, October 2011
Brad filmed parts of "World War Z" here.After a problem at a filming location in Russia, lots of the great final street battle with the zombies was switched to Hungary. Interestingly enough, a minor scandal ensued as the film company flew in trunkloads of weapons in a plrivate plane, to use in the mock-battle. To add to the dodginess, the weapons were apparently completely live and not deactivated, so they were then seized in a movie-worthy raid by the Hungarian anti-terror forces. After all that, the film changed its artisitc direction during editing and as much as 12 minutes of moslty Budapest battle scenes were cut out, so we never got to enjoy that part!
