The filming of the action/thriller comedy 'The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard', with stunning Salma Hayek, her husband Samuel L. Jackson and suspended bodyguard Ryan Reynolds in a mission to save Europe from a terrorist attack by Antonio Banderas, finished in late May 2020, with the film premiering in the U.S. cinemas on 16 June 2021. The sequel gets released four years after the first film with Jackson and Reynolds in the lead roles, and judging by the response so far, it is even funnier and more entertaining.
Producers Matt O'Toole and Paul Ritchie chose Croatia from among several great options considered for filming locations, so some of the scenes were shot in Istria, Rijeka, Karlovac, Zagreb and Pisarovina, and on the island of Biševo. The trailer received more than 1.3 million views in less than 24 hours – a great promotion for the Croatian tourism!
