The Frenchman Guillaume Canet has already joined the film's production Jappeloup at Palma, which is expected be the biggest 2010 french production. The interpreter, married to Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, appeared in mid-morning by the Son Pardo Hippodrome.
Riding with the clothing, the famous actor, who plays the rider Pierre Durand, was practicing for an hour on a horse, perhaps the one that will play the famous horse that gives title to the film, Jappeloup. On the sands of Palma's racecourse will be recreated in the next few hours testing the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, where Jappeloup suffered a serious injury from which he recovered years later and become champion in Seoul. It seems that a specialist shoot the scene of the fall, and Canet.
Time has given a respite to the shooting of the film by Christian Duguay, who this weekend had to be content with indoor record in Alcudia and Son Pardo. Yesterday, no rain, work began on the exterior and on the sand, where the sets are installed.
The daily activity is higher in the enclosure. In the day yesterday, the production was attended by about 350 extras, which could be seen dressed in eighties style. They explained some of them, there are two types of extras: extras and VIPs. The former receive 50 euros per day and the latter 75.
Filming in Son Pardo concluded before the weekend, since the tracks must be free to the races to be held on Sunday. Production sources could not confirm Monday that the shooting is progressing on schedule and will not alter the agreed plan. That's when the team moves to the bullring of Palma to record scenes of jumping championships.
