Star Trek and X-Men star Sir Patrick Stewart is acting in an Israeli heist comedy called "Hunting Elephants."
The movie is being filmed in Israel, and Stewart has said that he's excited about the opportunity to work there, and to form "a firmer opinion" on the Mideast conflict.
Stewart is replacing John Cleese, who dropped out for health reasons. He is playing an Englishman who finds himself twisted up in a plot to rob a bank.
"Hunting Elephants"is being filmed by Israeli director Reshef Levy.
