Hollywood actor Goran Višnjić, best known to an international audience for his role as Dr. Luka Kovač on television series ER, is set to play the lead role in an upcoming feature film on the life of Croatian wartime general Ante Gotovina. The first scenes of ‘General’, which traces the life of General Gotovina, were shot near Sveti Rok in the Lika-Senj County in February, and on March the 14th the crew moved to Zadar County. The director of the film Antun Vrdoljak said that he first got the idea for the film when Gotovina was arrested and transferred to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. After a turbulent youth and years spent as a French legionnaire and mercenary, Gotovina achieved hero status in the Croatian War of Independence. After being imprisoned by The Hague, Gotovina was acquitted of war crime charges and released from a Hague prison in 2011 after spending 7 years inside. Croatia’s Hollywood actor Goran Višnjić is playing the part of General Gotovina, and he says he was very nervous before filming started and it was a great honor to be playing a ‘hero’ of his. Višnjić, who has never met Gotovina, went to The Hague to show his support when Gotovina was in prison. In addition to the film, which is set for release next year (2018), Croatian state broadcaster HRT will shoot an eight-part television series on the same subject.
