Casting Call for wartime drama starring Colin Firth set to film on Costa next March: A Malaga casting company is searching for extras. ModExpoR is looking above all for men over 20 with a classic look and short hair, and clean shaven, who would be able to play German or Allied soldiers. Those interested in taking part can initially apply online at the casting company’s website. The dates set for filming in the Malaga area are 4-8 March. Not all locations have been revealed, but it is known that Malaga city hall will be used for at least one scene.
John Madden, the director of Oscar-winning Shakespeare in Love, is to film in Malaga and surrounding area in March in his latest project, and Colin Firth is set to take one of the lead roles.
Exact details of the filming aren’t known, but the title of the World War II drama is Operation Mincement. The script centres on the true story of a plot to fool Nazis into believing that the Allied invasion of southern Europe in 1943 wouldn’t come via Sicily but from Greece instead.

Travel Advisory: Spanish foreign ministry advises against travel to southwestern Algeria at a time when many people fly there to visit Sahrawi refugees. On Wednesday they issued an alert advising against travel to Sahrawi refugee camps in Tindouf, in southwestern Algeria, due to the risk of a terrorist attack.
Many Spaniards regularly travel to these camps as part of a volunteer program called Vacaciones en Paz (Vacation in Peace), which each summer welcomes around 4,000 Sahrawi children aged eight through 12 into Spanish homes during the months of July and August. Many of these Spanish families later go visit their young guests in Tindouf, either during the Christmas holidays or in early December, when there are two back-to-back public holidays. At these times, the Spanish population in Tindouf increases tenfold. Full article: https://elpais.com/elpais/2019/11/28/inenglish/1574929809_487470.html
