McGregor is bundled from head to toe starting with a warm, black, fur hat, and a double-breasted, grey long coat.
The actor, who plays Count Alexander Rostov in the Showtime/Paramount Plus, was joined by two other actors who appeared to be dressed in military uniform.
The film is based on Amor Towles’ 2016 bestselling novel which follows the count in the aftermath of the Russian revolution. His past allegiances find him on the losing side of the struggle, and instead of being executed, he is given the bizarre punishment of being exiled to an attic room in the opulent Hotel Metropol.
Ewan’s wife Mary Elizabeth Winstead will play Anna Urbanova, ‘a glamorous, independent and self-made film actress”.
