22 June 2019 – Actress Salma Hayek (52) is set to return to Croatia to film another movie.

In April and May this year, Hayek spent time in Rovinj, Rijeka and Zagreb filming ‘The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard’ with Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hayek will return to Croatia with Owen Wilson to star in the ‘mind-bending romancer’ Bliss for Amazon Studios and Endgame Entertainment.  

“Mike Cahill is directing the sci-fi project now shooting in Los Angeles and Croatia. Wilson plays a recent divorcee, Greg, whose life is falling apart as he meets an enchanting woman, Isabel, played by Hayek, who lives on the streets and is convinced that the polluted, broken world around them is not real. Isabel insists they live in an ugly, harsh world simulation inside of the beautiful, peaceful real world of bliss. Doubtful at first, Greg eventually discovers there may be some truth to Isabel’s wild theory,” The Hollywood Reporter writes.

“Mike Cahill is a brilliant storyteller gifted by a unique ability to craft the truly high-concept idea in a deeply soulful way that resonates with audiences,” Ted Hope, co-head of movies at Amazon Studios, said in a statement.
