DUBROVNIK - 28. August 2006 - Woody Harelson and Owen Wilson have arrived to Dubrovnik for the 2nd Libertas Film Festival. Woody will also attend the regional premiere of "A Prairie Home Companion" film by the famous Oscar winning director Robert Altman, in which Woody also plays one of the lead roles.

"Dubrovnik is a great city and to be honest, I'm not here for the Festival only. I was talking to my friend Owen Wilson about Dubrovnik's beauty, when he told me that he was inited to the film festival. So I thought I'll come along, too," commented Woody, after being one and half hour late to his interview with journalists.

Owen Wilson was also supposed to be present for interview, but turned up really late and not in a mood to speak. He only commented that Dubrovnik is a beautiful city with lots of pretty women.

ZAGREB - 26. August 2006 - In preparations for film "The Hunting Party" (originally titled Spring Break in Bosnia), which will be filmed in Sarajevo, Bosnia, as well as in Zagreb, Hollywood actor Richard Gere has rented a villa in Zagreb's suburb Remete. His only two requests were that the villa has a piano and a garden.

The film "The Hunting Party" is a story of a journalist and his cameraman trying to find in Bosnia and Croatia a wanted war criminal, Radovan Karadzic look alike. Both Karadzic and Mladic are still at large and wanted by the Hague tribunal for war crimes.

The film is based on an Esquire article, Spring Break in Bosnia, by Scott Anderson. The film stars Richard Gere, Terrence Howard, James Brolin, Diane Kruger and other Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian actors. Radovan Karadzic look alike is played by a well known Croatian actor, Ljubomir Kerekes.

The villa in Zagreb was found for Richard by the local agency Top Shop, who emailed him details of several properties. He settled down for a 350 square metres house, with a large garden and backyard, that will provide him with peaceful surroundings.

Richard Gere is due to arrive to Zagreb on the 3rd September, where he will stay for the duration of filming the movie, which is expected to be for 2 months.

After spending a few days in Zagreb initially, he will be going to Sarajevo in Bosnia, where most of the filming will be done. After that he's coming back to Zagreb, where he will be joined by his wife and actress Carey Lowell and his 6 year old son.

DUBROVNIK - 23. August 2006 - Well known American actor Nick Nolte has arrived to the city of Dubrovnik, with his son Brawley, where they plan to stay four days. They arived here after attending Sarajevo's Film Festival in the neighbouring Bosnia.

He conducted a short interview with journalists at hotel Palace. With almost 40 years of acting experience behind him, Nick is a walking Hollywood encyclopaedia of anecdotes and gossip.

"Apart from one journalist, Marlon Brando was the only other person to call me at 4 in the morning. If something came to his mind, Brando had to share it with someone, no matter what the time," remembered Nolte.

After exploring Dubrovnik, Nick Nolte also joined his fellow actors Michael Ohoven and Owen Wilson in partying at various clubs, including the popular Talir.
