Prague's Barrandov Studios is set to host a slew of Hollywood movie and TV projects in the coming year as the Czech film service industry bounces back after a decade in the doldrums.

Plans to expand production incentives that introduced a twenty percent rebate on movies shooting in the former Communist central European country five years ago after years of political opposition are expected to put the country back on the international budgets of Hollywood producers.

Barrandov-based Stillking Films, co-producer of Soviet Stalin-era serial killer thriller Child 44, is hosting the second season of Fox 21's Legends, a crime thriller starring British actor Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings) as a deep cover operative. And Lakeshore Entertainment is prepping for principle photography due to start in October on Underworld: Next Generation, the fifth film in the vampire franchise starring Kate Beckinsale.
