Confirmed that the sequel to “Lord of War” starring Nicolas Cage will be filmed in Morocco in 2024. The production company behind the film, Kasbah Films, which is based in Tangier, has secured a number of U.S. and U.K. projects that will also be shot in Morocco.
Morocco is a popular destination for filmmakers due to its diverse landscapes, rich history, and attractive tax incentives. The country has been featured in numerous international films, including blockbusters like “Gladiator” and “Game of Thrones.”
The decision to shoot the sequel in Morocco is likely influenced by the country’s ability to provide suitable locations for the story. As the sequel revolves around an international arms dealer, Morocco’s varied landscapes can easily stand in for different parts of the world, providing a visually appealing backdrop for the film.
Additionally, Morocco has a strong local film industry, with experienced crews and production facilities available. This, along with the support from Kasbah Films, makes it an ideal location for large-scale productions like the “Lord of War” sequel.
With filming slated to begin in 2024, fans of the original film can look forward to seeing Nicolas Cage reprise his role as the notorious arms dealer. The sequel is expected to continue exploring the themes of the illegal arms trade and the consequences it has on global conflicts.
Overall, the decision to shoot the “Lord of War” sequel in Morocco reflects the country’s growing reputation as a desirable filming location and the commitment of Kasbah Films to bringing international projects to the region.
