Or rather Hollywood comes to Bali?
Oscar-winning Hollywood star Julia Roberts has arrived in Bali for what is expected to be a month-long filming of the Bali portion of Elizabeth Gilbert’s novel “Eat Pray Love.”Gilbert’s best-selling autobiographical recounting of her post-divorce travels in Italy, India and Bali is to become a Columbia Pictures (Sony) film starring Roberts, Javier Bardem and Richard Jenkins.Bali filming is centered on areas in and around Ubud and Bali’s southernmost beach with cast and crew staying in various five star hotels on the island.
Filming is also scheduled to take place in Ubud’s famous monkey forest in Padangtegal, Nyuh Kuning, Pengosekan and the traditional art market in Ubud.
Those hoping to steal a look at Julia Roberts or a Hollywood film in production may be disappointed. Elaborate security perimeters are being set up at filming locales that keep the general public at a minimum distance of 500 meters.
