Tarragona is hosting this week the filming of Action Man, produced by Netflix and directed by Javier Ruiz Caldera (Superlópez, Malnazidos). Registration in the city began on Monday at the Educatiu complex and will also pass through the Bank of Spain and the prison. It has the participation of extras from Tarragona who have already passed the casting process.
Action Man starring Juan José Ballesta (El Bola, 7 virgins) and Miki Esparbé (El Inocente, where two fits). The film, which will be shot between Spain and France, is inspired by the life of Lucio Urtopia (Navarra, 1931-Paris, 2020), a construction worker and anarchist militant, given his clandestine activity in favor of international anarchist groups, by the Spanish and French political left as a kind of Robin Hood.
He was one of the participants in the First National City Bank scam by forging travelers’ checks with galleys. Hundreds of these fake checks were distributed across Europe and several Latin American countries between January 1980 and December 1982.
