Troy Scenes to be Filmed in Rosarito, Frontera (Mexico), August 23, 2003
translated by Roxy
While a battle of warriors was going on, the first of the four ships that will
appear in "Troy" arrives. "Troy" is being filmed at the Faro Viejo Dunes in Los
Cabos, Baja California South. Working on the boat were mexican workers who also
worked on the boat for "Titanic" in Rosarito, Baja California North. "Everything that
they're making is a piece of art. I've heard that everything is being done carefully
to obtain the look that is desired" explained Jesus Corral Gonzales, the Secretary
of Turism for Los Cabos. "In fact the footage of the docking of the boats will also
be shot in Rosarito, Baja California due to the fact that in Los Cabos the security
measures aren't met, since it's open sea, The Pacific Ocean, and The Sea of Cortez,"
said Corral. 'Troy' is the epic film based on 'The Iliad,' with a cast including
Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, Orlando Bloom, Dian Kruger and Peter O'Toole.
[The rest is just about how they added plants to beaches, and moved the turtles' nesting areas to safer locations and that production started July 26th and will
continue for six weeks.]
