A Hungarian newspaper reviewed Robin Hood, which was filmed there - following excerpt from the translation graciously provided at link below...
[Translation: When evil takes it all With Richard Armitage, the actor playing Sir Guy of Gisborne, a new Mr Darcy was born. The actor, who mainly displayed his talents on the British stage, was discovered by television in 2004. He achieved a breakthrough as the noble-hearted but scowling textile manufacturer in the drama serial based on the novel North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, a 19th century British Romantic writer... He appeared in several series of Spooks (only some of which have been shown on our screens), and in the action series Strike Back, which was a big success last year in the UK, and where he was admired for rock-solid action scenes and character development as John Porter, an ex-SAS officer who had served in Iraq. Now he's shooting Captain America, a movie based on a comic strip, and he has a leading role in the new Tolkien adaptation, The Hobbit. Soon the name Richard Armitage will no longer be primarily associated with the ex-Deputy Secretary of State of the USA.]

Channing Tatum comments on his latest venture and in the process makes it clear that he's another hottie actor who has managed to keep his ego in check
despite all the public adulation. He describes his upcoming film and rationalizes why it has compelled him to watch - although at first he was nonplussed by the genre in general..
>Channing Tatum was interviewed by Collider when they got onto the subject of Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire. That is the film that stars Gina Carano as a spy who goes on the run.
Being a Soderbergh movie you know it will be a bit different from the other spy movies and that seems to apply to the soundtrack. The subject cropped up when Collider asked if Haywire would be shown at Cannes.
Tatum: Maybe. I don’t know what’s going on with it - they[studio and director] might have been disagreeing because he scored the entire movie like a spaghetti western. Literally I get out of the car and [the actor whistles like he's in a Clint Eastwood-Sergio Leone film] ..I don’t know if this works but it’s frickin’ awesome. It sounds great - that’s Soderbergh, you can’t really put him in a box. You can’t put him in a genre or a type. He’s going to do Soderbergh. I can’t wait - haven’t seen the movie yet.
What’s your character? Tatum: I play a Blackwater agent. We are commissioned to kidnap someone - everything goes wrong in a way, and Gina Carano who plays the lead character is set up for it. It’s sort of like a female Bourne Identity. My wife always hates when I say “just don’t love female action movies!” I don’t know why - just don’t rush to see them. I said "if they'd find a girl that can, pardon my French, whoop my ass then I will go to the movies and watch it. They did! They found one. And she did! It was awesome - I truly loved it! So yeah, can't wait to see it myself to be totally honest."<
The Playlist have the news that Haywire will be released on 22 April 2011.
From website linked below: Hopeful for Action Soon at Hobbiton
February 4th, 2011 - The bickering is over, the director is on the mend, and The Hobbit is about to start shooting. Hobbiton, near Matamata, has announced it will be closed for five weeks from February 14. While Matamata locals were tight-lipped about any goings-on, Matamata-Piako Mayor Hugh Vercoe confirmed filming was due to start and that the Hobbiton site – used for Shire scenes in The Lord of the Rings and now rebuilt for The Hobbit – would be a closed set.
“I’m just aware that filming is about to start,” Mr Vercoe said.
