Visit the Backdrop for ‘Runner, Runner’

October 17, 2013

The new movie Runner, Runner has the setting backdrop of beautiful Costa Rica. The film shot there for a week so they could get the authentic and adventurous feel of the country first hand.

One of Brad Furman’s reasons for signing on to direct the picture was the attraction of the setting. It would be like a working vacation. However, when he was told by studio heads that he would need to shoot in Puerto Rico instead, he fought hard and won in the end.

After fighting concerns by studio heads, Furman won the chance to shoot for a week in the beautiful locale of Costa Rica and he has nothing but praises for the country.

“…there is an incredible spirit in Costa Rica…it is really beautiful,” the director said in an interview with movie website Collider about his want to shoot in the country and his experience in absorbing the culture and adventures there.

Runner, Runner is about online gambling and how Justin Timberlake’s character gets sucked into the beauty, majesty and spirit of Costa Rica. He has his own Costa Rica adventure in a way.

If you’re planning a vacation then try something new and fun. Go see the movie Runner, Runner (which is currently playing in most theaters) and pay attention to the overhead shots, the backdrop settings and the beauty of the movie’s locales. If it looks appealing then perhaps you should be a little adventurous and head to Costa Rica for your own vacation this holiday season.
