Stewart In Hunting Elephants

1 min read

Sir Patrick Stewart has arrived in Israel to begin filming for Hunting Elephants.

Directed by Reshef Levy, Hunting Elephants is the story of a “precocious dreamer hoping to save his family home by enlisting a group of pensioners.”

Originally, John Cleese was to have a role in the film, but he had to drop out of the project, and Stewart is Cleese’s replacement. Stewart will be playing an English gentleman who becomes involved in a “half-baked plot” to rob a bank.

“It was a great honor to be given a role that was written for John Cleese,” said Stewart. “I have to see how I can make it my own. I always wanted to be funny, now I have a chance.”

Stewart welcomed the chance to visit Israel again. “I told my family and friends that I wanted to come back [to Israel],” he said. “I am happy to be here, not as a tourist but as part of an Israeli movie production.”

Being in Israel will give Stewart a chance to learn more about the country and its role in the Middle East peace process. ““I plan to leave Israel in a few weeks with a firmer opinion about what’s going on here,” he said.
