Gerard Butler action-film 'Kandahar' wraps filming in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia-based action film Kandahar, starring Gerard Butler and David Negahban, has just wrapped filming after a seven-week shoot in Saudi Arabia’s desert region of AlUla and Jeddah, directed by Ric Roman Waugh. First look images from the film have just been released.

The film stars Butler star as Tom Harris, an undercover CIA operative, stuck deep in hostile territory in Afghanistan. He must fight his way out, alongside his Afghan translator, to an extraction point in Kandahar, all whilst avoiding the elite special forces tasked with hunting them down.

Kandahar is produced by Thunder Road Films and Capstone, with MBC, which is also co-financing and handling rights.
