There were earlier reports that filming was to be at least partly in Croatia, but I don't know if that's where this photo was taken or when Meryl's scenes actually begin.  Regardless of when they do, since it's barely mid August and filming is already underway, I expect shooting to wrap around November.


  1. I think they rather started rehearsing than shooting:

    1. You may be right! I wonder though why Lily James would be rehearsing in costume. Also, it's possible that they are filming the "prequel" scenes first, which would mean Lily James is already filming, whereas Pierce, Amanda and Meryl may just be in rehearsals at this point.
