The Italian press are a little slow with this, aren't they?


http://www.lanuovasardegna.it/tempo-libero/2018/04/10/news/clooney-a-olbia-nuovo-blitz-tutto-pronto-per-il-suo-film-1.16696214


[size=38]Clooney a Olbia, nuovo blitz : tutto pronto per il suo film[/size]

Un altro sopralluogo dell’attore-regista al vecchio aeroporto di Venafiorita  Ultimi controlli e area già delimitata, Olbia diventa il set di “Comma 22”di Dario Budroni




George Clooney a Vena Fiorita
OLBIA. La star americana si presenta anche stavolta a bordo di un Mercedes Van di colore bianco. Poi si infila un cappuccio nero, si copre il volto con un paio di occhiali da sole e alla fine fa quattro passi tra cespugli e sterpaglie, dove qualcuno ha già sistemato paletti di ferro, bandierine rosse e bagni chimici. Il tempo dei sopralluoghi e delle valutazioni è finito. George Clooney è tornato sulla pista dell’aeroporto di Venafiorita perché è arrivato il momento di transennare l’area e dare il via alla costruzione del set.

Ormai non ci sono più dubbi. L’attore hollywoodiano girerà a Olbia la serie “Comma 22”. Lo farà nella campagna tra la città e il paese di Loiri, in un aeroporto inaugurato prima della Seconda guerra mondiale e abbandonato nei primissimi anni Settanta. Clooney, che alla fine si è pure tolto il cappuccio e ha sfoggiato la sua inconfondibile capigliatura brizzolata, si è innamorato della location olbiese. L’attore e regista è convinto che il vecchio aeroporto di Venafiorita sia il luogo ideale dove ambientare una serie che ha come protagonista un gruppo di aviatori statunitensi in missione in Italia negli anni Quaranta. Le riprese cominceranno tra un mese. Insieme a Clooney reciteranno Hugh Laurie, meglio conosciuto come Doctor House, e Christopher Abbott.

Lavori in corso. I produttori della Paramount e di Anonymous hanno lavorato sodo per settimane. Hanno affrontato gli aspetti tecnici e logistici e hanno anche bloccato le stanze di diversi hotel della zona. Poi è arrivato il via libera della Regione, che ha dato in concessione la vecchia aerea portuale alla produzione di “Comma 22”. E così in fondo alla pista, in un punto totalmente isolato e circondato solo da campi incolti, si sta cominciando a lavorare per delimitare l’area di quello che sarà il set della serie. Ieri sono stati sistemati alcuni paletti e un paio di bandierine rosse per circoscrivere la zona. Poi è arrivato anche lui, George Clooney, che della serie sarà sia regista che interprete.


La stella del cinema mondiale, che aveva fatto un sopralluogo a Venafiorita anche un mese fa, ha perlustrato l’aeroporto individuando quegli angoli che più si prestano al suo progetto. Nei prossimi giorni, naturalmente, la zona sarà totalmente transennata. Sarà impossibile avvicinarsi al set. I dettagli, comunque, ancora non si conoscono. Ma è praticamente certo che la produzione costruirà una sorta di cittadella del cinema, con le strutture che ospiteranno le riprese e con altre strutture per il dietro le quinte. Ancora non è stata annunciata la data dell’inizio delle riprese. Ma con tutta probabilità tutto comincerà nelle prime settimane di maggio. Quindi la produzione avrà circa un mese di tempo per allestire il set. Il termine è previsto per metà luglio.

Olbia protagonista. La serie tv “Comma 22” sarà girata in gran parte a Olbia. E non solo nell’aeroporto di Venafiorita. Alcune scene saranno infatti girate anche al mare, visto che il romanzo dal quale è tratta la serie è ambientato nell’isola di Pianosa, al largo della Toscana. La produzione ha fatto diversi sopralluoghi e avrebbe individuato una spiaggia a sud di Olbia. Non è da escludere, comunque, che alcune scene vengano girate fuori dalla Sardegna. Molto probabilmente a Viterbo, dove Clooney era stato beccato e fotografato neanche un mese fa.

La mobilitazione. Il set impegnerà un qualcosa come 250 persone, tra tecnici, attori e produttori. Saranno tutti sistemati nelle strutture ricettive di Olbia e dintorni. Poi in città arriveranno anche i mezzi d’epoca da utilizzare durante le riprese, come jeep e aerei tipici del secondo conflitto mondiale. George Clooney, che ormai da gennaio va e viene a bordo del suo jet privato, non andrà a dormire in albergo. Avrebbe già individuato una villa dove alloggiare. Ma non sarà in Costa Smeralda. Clooney preferirebbe maggiore riservatezza

Everything is ready for the new Clooney film in Olbia

[size=30]Everything is ready for the new Clooney film in Olbia[/size]

Clooney in Olbia, another survey in fact, for the actor-director at the old airport of Venafiorita.
Another inspection for the last checks; Olbia officially becomes the "Comma 22" set.

Clooney in Olbia

The American star shows up in a white Mercedes Van.
Then with a black hood, he covers his face with a pair of sunglasses and at the end takes four steps between bushes and scrub, where someone has already placed iron posts, red flags and chemical toilets.
The time of the inspections and evaluations is over.
George Clooney is back on the runway of the Venafiorita airport because the time has come to cross the area and start the construction of the set.

In Olbia the "Comma 22" series

The Hollywood actor will shoot the series "Comma 22" in Olbia.
It will do so in the countryside between the city and the village of Loiri, in an airport inaugurated before the Second World War and abandoned in the early seventies.
This is because the actor and director is convinced that the old airport of Venafiorita is the ideal place to set a series that has as its protagonist a group of US aviators on a mission in Italy in the forties.
Filming will start in a month. Along with Clooney will be Hugh Laurie, better known as Doctor House, and Christopher Abbott.

Works and production

The producers of Paramount and Anonymous worked hard for weeks, tackling all the technical and logistical aspects.
Then he too came, George Clooney, who in the series will be both director and performer.
The star of the world cinema, who had made a visit to Venafiorita even a month ago, has scoured the airport by identifying those corners that are best suited to his project.
In the coming days, of course, the area will be totally cordoned off.
In the city will also come vintage vehicles to be used during filming, as jeeps and planes typical of the Second World War.
The details, however, still do not know each other; but it is here that the production, will build a sort of citadel of the cinema, with all the facilities that will host the shooting.
The date of the start of filming has not yet been announced. However, the deadline is scheduled for mid-July.

The great protagonist will be Olbia

The TV series "Comma 22" will be shot in large part in Olbia and not only in the Venafiorita airport.
Some scenes will in fact also be shot at the sea, since the novel from which the series is based is set in the island of Pianosa, off the coast of Tuscany.
The production has made several inspections and would have identified a beach south of Olbia.
It is not to be excluded, however, that some scenes are filmed outside Sardinia.
Most likely in Viterbo, where Clooney had been caught and photographed not even a month ago
