In December of 2015 HBO's Game of Thrones producer Duncan Muggoch (also known for his work on "The Davinci Code", "Bourne" and "Thor: The Dark World") visited Cuba. While there he spoke at the Fabrica de Arte Cubano to an audience of fans about what goes into producing Game of Thrones and also used the visit as a location scouting mission. He noted the climate and lanscape is very similar to some of the places in Spain and Croatia where Game of Thrones often shoots. Although nothing is set in throne, Cuba is definitely on Muggoch's influential radar. He noted that Cuba is an affordable filming location with lots of potential for success; especially given the weather...in Cuba winter is always coming, but never arrives.
Cuba’s film community has started asking the hard questions about a future influx of productions and filmmaking on the island. There’s pride in the number of behind-the-scenes Cuban talent available (skilled technicians who appear in the end credits), but also curiosity about how homegrown actors, actresses and directors will fare when American ways of making film, TV and content meet Cuba’s unique ways of doing business.
The popular Fast & Furious franchise is potentially shooting its 8th film, "Fast & Furious 8" in Cuba in 2016. Thanks to Pres. Obama opening up travel restrictions between the U.S. and Cuba, Universal Pictures is now in the process of getting aproval from U.S. and Cuban governments to shoot in Cuba. Director F. Gary Gray is hopeful after a scouting trip to direct the first Hollywood studio film shot in Cuba since the 1960's.
