More Silvestre: http://www.cinemablend.com/televisio...-make-season-3

Quote:
Eventually the subject of Sense8 came up, and I asked him what he thought about xHamster's proposal. He said,

Quote:
I feel like, wow that's insane. That's impressive. I think Sense8 is not going to stop bringing us surprises. But the most beautiful surprise is what the fans did for us. They brought back life to Sense8 in a way that nobody has ever one before in any show. And that is remarkable. Thanks to them, Netflix gave us another opportunity.
It looks like Miguel Angel Silvestre isn't totally ruling out xHamster's offer to produce Season 3.
If you say so Mr. Journalist, because to me it looked like Silvestre said "Neat." and deflected.

Quote:
I asked Miguel Angel Silvestre about Sense8's sudden cancellation as well, and he told me what the news felt like for the cast. He said,

Quote:
It caught us by surprise. I never would have said that was going to happen with Sense8. Because we knew that the ratings were really high. Netflix doesn't release the numbers, but you can kind of guess through Twitter. We used to be a trending topic many times. So we knew there was a huge following there. And the fans were very loyal. It caught us by surprise, and it was a huge shock. When we said goodbye at the end of the shooting of the second season it was just 'Goodbye, see you soon. See you in some months.'
Tip to all actors: Never judge the popularity of your show based on the tweets you read. Social media are horrible in that regard. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filter_bubble

Silvestre and producer Peter Friedlander talk Sense8, filming starts October 2: http://www.reforma.com/aplicacionesl...c16cb9ad1b2efe
http://www.aldiadallas.com/2017/09/0...etflix-sense8/

(Translation: )

Quote:
The actor, originally from Castellon de la Plana, Spain, still has not read the script of the final chapter of the series, which will last two hours and be broadcast in 2018, but he has very clear what he wants to convey with his character. "I would like to be able to demonstrate that there are events that happen in life that are very special, despite the violence in the world or racism in the United States. "I hope that Lito will do very well in his work, because he is much more faithful to what he is," he said. Director Lana Wachowski, creator of the series, has almost ready the script of the special episode, with which the eight leading characters will say goodbye to the public.

"Peter Friedlander, the producer, has told me that he has already read things and that he is a fan of what Lana is writing," he said.

Friedlander said that the production, which starts filming the October 2, will leave satisfied fans.

"We are very excited about the final, but sad because it was a great experience and it is over. I can not say much, but Lana has delivered something very special, at the level of the show," said the producer.
edit Silvestre again: http://www.ntn24.com/video/los-actor...premier-151255

Quote:
"I trust Lana is writing something very special for the fans of the series that we owe so much," added the actor referring to the last chapter of the series that begins shooting on October 2.

Lana and production are currently in Naples, Italy, for location scouting.

Lana and production (without cast) are in Naples for location scouting. They will decide these days where to film the special of #Sense8. For now they have a list of 5 locations to verify. Where will they go ??? ����
edit Actual source of image is this: https://www.facebook.com/fumetteriaf...71105906325579

Lana was in the Fanta Universe comic book shop in Italy, signed two Funkos, of Morpheus and Trinity, and confirmed to the store owners they will be filming in Italy and she is scouting there.

edit Confirmed by Malerba: http://www.optimaitalia.com/blog/201...se-foto/811721

Quote:
The production is already in Naples, as is shown by a picture by Roberto Malerba, producer of the show and longtime collaborator of the sisters Wachowski , who in his Facebook profile portrays a stunning night-time panorama with the undisputed star of the wonderful Castel dell'Ovo.

Apparently the production of Sense8 is in Naples for the traditional scouting activities that precede the start of shooting, as evidenced by Malerba's post.
More about the (potential) location: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castel_dell%27Ovo

edit Here is the complete(?) Kinowerks Sense8 team, including co-writers Mitchell and Hemon, that partook in the Market Days celebration/fan thanking/"fans needs to get out there and make more fans" event from last month: https://www.instagram.com/p/BYecMBtAin1/

Also noticed that Winslow was with Mitchell in "St Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh" 1 week ago, but it likely was for non-Sense8 reasons... Just hanging out together. https://www.instagram.com/p/BYVgOA9AIfu/

At first glance I thought the statue on the front of St.Mary's was carrying a bomb, not a fish...
Listening to David Mitchell read between Scarlatti and John Cage sonatas (played on two differently tuned pianos) was mesmerizing & deeply inspiring.

Ibarra confirms filming begins in October in.. Mexico City?

https://www.debate.com.mx/show/Erend...0905-0378.html

(Translation: )

Quote:
"I do not know many details yet and what I know I can not reveal, but we will start filming it in October in this city."
I mean I don't know which city is "this city", but from the article there's no indication she made this statement when being somewhere outside of Mexico, so I would expect it to be Mexico City. edit: Yes, it's Mexico City where she was when she said it as evidenced from the bellow sources.

Interesting if true, it could mean that what people really wanted since they saw the season 2 finale; to see the sensates putting the plan together, and then executing it, and then meeting together for the first time, could be happening, if the reason they are filming in Mexico City is for Lito to explain to Dani and Hernando what's going on and why they have to fly to London instead of starting in London from where season 2 ended.

edit Same quote: http://www.excelsior.com.mx/funcion/2017/09/06/1186426 but it also says she will be busy supporting Oaxaca FilmFest from October 6-13. I am making a note of it since supposedly production of the special starts October 2.

Or it could just be scenes of Dani and Hernando talking to Lito over the phone from London. Too soon to tell, I think...

Lana was at "Napoli Sotterranea", Naples' underground tunnels: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naples...eothermal_zone

Quote:
The resulting cavities beneath the city can now be divided up into several major categories:

Aqueducts and sewer tunnels;
Rainwater cisterns, reservoirs and aqueduct diversionary channels;
Caverns left from quarrying of tuff;
The remains of Nero's "lost" theatre;
Greco-Roman businesses, such as the remains of an ancient forum that was preserved in a mud slide;
Other voids from removal of sand and other types of materials;
Interconnecting tunnels and passageways among caverns;
Places of worship, including catacombs and pre-Christian hypogea (cult burial chambers);
Major ancient and modern roadway tunnels, and rail and subway tunnels.

Today, tours of the elaborate underground beneath Naples are available and there is even a museum of the underground located beneath Piazza Cavour in a huge quarry cavity with connecting tunnels and aqueduct passageways. It contains elaborate replicas of Greek hypogea and many ancient artifacts discovered during more than half a century of exploration.

It was immense pleasure and great emotion to have #lanawachowski at #NAPOLISOTTERRANEA #PERCORSOUFFICIALE! All of us at least once saw #Matrix the movie with @keanureeves__official or #CloudAtlas. And who does not know the TV series Sense8...
It looks like Lana wasn't (probably) alone sightseeing from the picture, so it could be a potential filming location, especially since there's a museum there, and Sense8 has featured several such places.

Karen Winslow is in Paris, so potential location scouting going on there? The ending of season 2 hinted heavily at future adventures in Paris...

It's been confirmed for some time now that they're filming in Paris. They are definitely doing location scouting right now, so it seems that scouting has moved to Paris. Karen was in Naples with Lana a few days ago so I assume Lana is in Paris now as well.

Karen was also spotted a few weeks ago in London filming/shooting something (for the intro sequence?), so unless they've already done some scouting in London, I assume they will either head to London and Berlin next.

In other news, Erendira seems to have denied that they will begin filming the special in Mexico, but I'm not sure if she's also denying that they will be filming in Mexico at all? She tweeted this: https://twitter.com/erendiritas/stat...60571084718081

Quote:
Sorry but that's not true. I never mentioned where the shoot will start. But it's starting soon and we are head over heals excited!
in response to this:

https://twitter.com/Raissa_rcamara/s...04229578018816

Quote:
Erendita gave an inteview and confirmed she will be in the special and that the shoot starts in mexico.
A lot of people all over social media are taking it as that they will not be filming in Mexico, which I think is agreeable given that most sources have said they are only filming in Europe... But who knows! I'm confused lol but hopefully more information comes up

If she said that, then I don't think they will shoot in Mexico City indeed. She's not denying it, as you say, but I do believe it was probably a mistake when it was reported she said it.

xHamster is at it again:

http://www.thewrap.com/sense8-porn-x...flix-season-3/

Quote:
TheWrap: Are you looking to a make a sexier version of the show? Would you show penetration?

Alex Hawkins: We’d need to negotiate with the producers and the actors, but yes, ideally we’d want to push the line more than was allowed on Netflix. If we could get penetration, of course we’d include it. Why be shy about sex? We’re a different type of platform. It could be that those scenes would be extended, or that they’d be more explicit.
Quote:
Have you heard anything from the Wachowskis, other producers, Netflix or the cast? Do sense “Sense8” fans appear to be onboard?

We were contacted by the “Sense8” team a few days after the letter, and set up a call. We were quite surprised. We were genuine in our offer, but we knew it was a long shot that they would even consider reaching out.
Cue the next fan frenzy in 3...2...1...

As I recall, there was a gay porn of the show almost immediately when the first season came out.

They changed their tune from "producing" the $50-100M series that Sense8 is to merely "distributing"

Quote:
“Sense8” is wildly expensive in its Netflix version. How would you pay for that, and would have to find a way to trim the budget?

We made the proposal to be the distribution platform. If they accept the offer, that’s where the negotiating comes in. We have a tremendous audience, but we’re not a mainstream channel, and our revenue model is different. That has advantages and disadvantages. I think most of all, we’d want to be creative, both in how it’s filmed and how we execute it.
As if distributing was ever an issue to Netflix.
