The picturesque city of Guanajuato will once again prove to be the perfect setting for a movie. Already in the past, the cast of Spectre, came to prove it, and now, it will be the turn of actor and American model Mark Wahlberg, who will paralyze the streets of Mexico City to film scenes from the film Infinite, directed by Antoine Fuqua.
In a press conference, the Government of Mexico City, through the local Secretariats of Government, Tourism, and Culture, announced the above and revealed the areas in which production will take place.
El Centro Histórico, Zócalo, Paseo de la Reforma, Periférico Sur, Autopista Urbana Sur, and Avenida Revolución will be the setting for Fuqua's new science fiction film, known for film productions such as The Magnificent Seven and The Justice 2, among others.
Shooting will last approximately seven days and will begin this Saturday. It will take place at night so as not to affect the population and the usual circulation of the country's capital.
According to the synopsis, Mark Wahlberg will personify a man who discovers that his hallucinations are visions of his past life. The cast is completed by the British Sophie Cookson, the American Dylan O'Brien, the British Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, and the Icelandic Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson; however, it is not known if they will also participate in the sequences to be recorded in Mexico.
Infinite will also be filmed in Guanajuato. On November 7, it was announced that at the end of the month the production would carry out a series of rehearsals in the downtown area of the city and the underground street. For the first days of December, it was announced that the actors will film action scenes that include shots with high-speed vehicles and various rollovers.
