Hungarian site has sent an update on 20th Century Fox's Eragon, based on the Christopher Paolini-penned bestselling fantasy novel. Stefen Fangmeier will direct the film, coming to theaters on June 16, 2006.

Steven Spielberg's upcoming 1972 Munich Olympics movie Vengeance won't be the only big-budget American production in Hungary this summer. Eragon, a fantasy-adventure based on Christopher Paolini's bestselling book will start filming in late July in the Mafilm Studio in Fót, Hungary (near Budapest). The movie has an estimated budget of $100 million, and it is set for a June 2006 release.

The Mafilm Fót Studios is the same place where Dinotopia: The Series, A Christmas Carol: The Musical and this year's Copying Beethoven was shot.

Dragon-themed movies are often shot in Central/East Europe: Dungeons & Dragons was shot in the Czech Republic, Dragonheart and it's sequel Dragonheart: A New Beginning was made in Slovakia, while Dragon Storm (a 2004 tv-movie) was shot in Bulgaria.

Fót Film Studios is not the only location for this film. This is the other place where the film will be shot, Ság Hill, which is located at the West side of Hungary. There will be a village, a waterfall etc.

Additional pictures can be found here. The medieval-set tale revolves around a farm boy who learns he is the last of a breed of benevolent Dragon Riders, whose magical powers derived from their bond with the beasts.

This movie looks pretty good so far....Follow the link above to get a look at the terrain it will be filmed in.
