Hold-up at Bank of Spain? Action film with Brit actor shuts city centre
16 April 2019 @ 14:12

AN ARMED robbery at the Bank of Spain in the heart of Madrid in the middle of a huge football final took place in the early hours of yesterday (Monday) - but all was not as it seemed.

The city centre block including the Cibeles fountain roundabout and the nation's economic and financial hub were shut off to traffic and pedestrians in the dead of night for a key scene in Jaume Balagueró's latest film, Way Down, to be shot.

A brilliant engineer with a cunning plan to break into a fortress-like bank, legendary lost treasure, a massive football final that keeps the city distracted, and a tale of ancient pirates, 'all mixed together and well stirred up', Balagueró described his forthcoming production back in February.
