According to the Hollywood Reporter, portions of the Netflix drama series Marco Polo will be filmed in Kazakhstan. The first season ofMarco Polo will see the famous explorer at the center of a brutal war in the 13th century China. The series is produced by Harvey Weinstein and Dan Minahan (known for the Game of Thrones).

According to Weinstein, “We are shooting all over the world. From the sweeping vistas of Kazakhstan – which act as backdrop for the wars and conquests of Kublai Khan – to the intimate moments within the alleys and canals of Marco’s hometown of Venice, Italy, this is spectacle in the truest sense of the word.”

Italian actor Lorenzo Richelmy will play Marco Polo, and the cast will include Chinese actor Zhu Zhu (who was also seen in Cloud Atlas). Marco Polo will debut on Netflix in late 2014.
