THE WACHOWSKI siblings, who rose to fame with the‘Matrix’trilogy, are in Bilbao to film some scenes for their next movie, ‘Jupiter Ascending.’
The filming began on May 8 with the urban and countryside background scenes and will continue for approximately three days in the Abaindoibarra area where they are getting as many shots as possible around the Guggenheim which, the siblings say, is the main reason they came to Bilbao as it fits perfectly with their futuristic theme. They will also be filming in other parts of the ‘new’ Bilbao taking advantage of the ultra-modern architecture.
Many Matrix fans have followed the filming of the new movie hoping to get a glimpse of their heroes; even the mayor of Bilbao, Ibon Areso, dropped past the set to meet the Wachowskis and welcome them to the Basque capital.
