Bourne Legacy’s Tony Gilroy describes Seoul as “the best place for shooting”
“Seoul is the best filming location. I was really impressed and surprised when I shot “The Bourne Legacy” for a week,” said the director in a phone interview with Yonhap News Agency.
He came to Korea last June when he filmed scenes at Seoul’s Gangnam Subway Station.
“We’ve been around the world, looking for an appropriate filming location. We want a location still unfamiliar to people, but still has skilled filmmakers who can assist our team,” Gilroy said.
He added, “Seoul was exciting and I was impressed by the proficiency of those involved in the film industry.”
The thriller is set to hit theaters on Sept. 6 in Korea.
