A Polish film about the epic battle of Warsaw against the Soviet Union in 1920 is being shot in 3D, the country’s first use of the technology, the producers said today (Monday). The Battle of Warsaw 1920, which started shooting on June 29, is being directed by Jerzy Hoffman. Director of photography is Slawomir Idziak, whose credits include Black Hawk Down, King Arthur, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The film has a budget of $6.1 million, making it one of Poland’s most expensive productions, with half that figure being financed by the Polish Film Institute. It has a cast of 80 actors and 3,500 extras, who will stand in for the tens of thousands of troops who were involved in the actual battle that preserved the country’s independence. In a statement, the producers said that they will use “multiplication” special effects to augment the extras in the battle scenes.
