Bel Ami to film in Budapest, Hungary

Twitter is abuzz today after reports surfaced that Robert Pattinson was spotted early Saturday in at Budapest’s Ferihegy Airport. Robert was photographed with fans wearing the same clothes that he was photographed wearing last night in London. Confusion followed, “how could Rob be in Budapest when he was just in London last night?” It should be known that Budapest is a short 2 hour and 20 minute flight from London.

According to Hungarian-based Robert Pattinson fan site, the photo of Rob with two lucky fans at the airport lead to a conversation with Rob of tourist sites to be seen and Rob reportedly asked directions to the centre (downtown Budapest.) The fans also reported that Rob was carrying his guitar case. Perhaps the charming city of Budapest will inspire some new Robert Pattinson ditties?

In the hours to follow, it was reported that Rob was spotted a bar downtown. Other fans reported seeing props erected along a “busy street” and rumors have begun circulating that Bel Ami will be filming with the props and backgrounds tomorrow. It is rumored that shots will also include a church. Photos of the props and backgrounds:

The photos include a background of a window dressing decorated in elaborate corsets, much like you would expect to find in a 1890s-era La Perla store window.

Street will be covered in sand to reflect road conditions in the 1890s – here is a photo pre-transformation:
