Wanted, which shot in the Czech Republic and Budapest, is gearing up for a June 27 release.

The first English-language film from Russian director Timur Bekmambetov, Wanted, spent 12 weeks filming in Prague before moving to Budapest. In Prague, the design team created a large industrial textile factory as the setting for the filming of the comic book miniseries.

Starring James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Angelina Jolie, Terence Stamp, and Russian film and TV star Konstantin Khabensky, the R-rated action/thriller was co-produced in Prague by Stillking Films (www.stillking.com).
