Jean Dujardin is NOT filming in Israel

On February 29th, we reported that The Artist’s Jean Dujardin plans to film his upcoming movie, Mobius, in Israel.

Although Dujardin’s character is on the hunt for a man laundering money from an Israeli casino, the film will not be shoot on location.

The film’s producer, Eric Juherian, confirms in an email to Shalom Life that the film never intended to shoot in Israel.

"We shoot the film between the south of France (Riviera), Luxembourg and Moscow," wrote Juherian. "I was never about to shoot the film in Israel."

“I do not know where this rumor is gone but you can reverse it,” Juherian continued.

Jean Dujardin will play the role of a Russian agent, and Cecile de France is a Franco American trader.

Wherever the rumor started, hopefully this will put it to an end. While we would love to have more movies filmed in Israel, and more film stars visit this wonderful country, sometimes people get a little overzealous with the rumors.
