BELGRADE: The US-based French director Alexandre Aja has just started filming his new feature film Crawl in the Serbian capital with the company Work in Progress Maintenance. Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert are producing for Paramount Pictures with Alexandre Aja via Ghost House Pictures. The film is shot entirely in Belgrade.
Crawl stars Kaya Scodelario and Barry Pepper and revolves around a young woman who struggles to save her father during a hurricane, is trapped in a flooded house and has to fight for her life against Florida’s most feared predators.
The total budget is EUR 14.5 million / USD 17 million. Filming will be completed in early September 2018. Crawl benefits from the Serbian cash rebates, which were raised to 25% in early 2018.
On July 30, 2018, the President of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić visited the set together with the US Ambassador to Serbia Kyle Scott.
