Franco-Croatian co-production Heaven On Earth began shooting Wednesday (May 20) on the Adriatic coast of Croatia.

The film, by Ognjen Svilicic, will shoot for four weeks with a release planned for early 2010. Janja Kralj of France’s Shilo Films is producing with Damir Teresax of Croatia’s Maxima Films.

Heaven is Svilicic’s third feature and stars Maya Sansa and Bristol Pomeroy as a young couple vacationing in Croatia as they attempt to save their relationship.
