Yesterday, Madonna personally chose the outfits of the 24 background actors for the shooting at the Domergue Villa in Cannes.
Multiple scenes have been shot:
- A scene between two characters on the beach of Cannes.
- A scene where Wallis is being chased by paparazzi, while police escorts her car on the way
to her villa.
- The wedding dinner between Wallis and Edward.
Madonna supervises every little detail, like costumes, scenery…
Today, the second day of shooting took place in France, but this time in Villefranche-sur-Mer. Madonna is shooting the important scenes on the “Rainbow of London”, a royal yacht used for the cruise on which the Wallis couple went in 1936…
Apparently the yacht plays an important role in the history of the couple.
The bad weather however was responsible for some delay, but Madonna went back to filming around 4pm.
Like we’ve been mentioning on AbMad, Madonna shot a few scenes at the Palm Beach in Cannes and at the gardens of the Domergue Villa.
“Madonna was looking for a location with amazing gardens. She visited the Villa, a couple of months ago, and instantly fell in love with it. She was supposed to stay there for 20 minutes but ended up visiting it for more than 2 hours.” explained David Lisnard, the Deputy Mayor.
Today, for her second day filming in France, she went to Villefranche-Sur-Mer.
She’s been shooting a few scenes on the port, including one where Wallis and Edward are getting out of their boat to head towards the old city. This really happened in Portofino, Italy, but Madonna chose to film those scenes in the South of France, instead.
The shooting ended around 6pm and Madonna is expected at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, tonight.
Tomorrow, Madonna will be in Paris, rue des Saints-Pères, next to the famous Saint-Germain district of Paris!
