Shaken

Daniel Craig was so excited about his forthcoming film Flashbacks of a Fool that he helped secure the finance. Not everyone, however, shares the enthusiasm of the James Bond star, right. I hear that Glen Haysman, who allowed scenes from the film to be shot at his house in Hertfordshire, is suing the producers for £100,000 after extensive damage was allegedly done to his property.

According to the High Court writ, three 18-ton lorries parked on his drive made it sink and filming damaged wallpaper in two rooms of his house and paintwork in two others. Mrs Rogers Films disputes the claims, which also include an allegation that it lost the stopper of a wine decanter.

Its perhaps one of those cases, where its either true or he tries to take advantange of them to get some restauration done for his house. Hopefully its the latter and they can prove their innocence.
If they go for the stopper of a wine decanter - I hear "I will sue you guys for all your are worth" :evil: (which is not much I assume)

The word greed comes to mind, he'll have been paid in the 1st place, just wants more. I worry about the nature of some people.

I'm sure they have insurance for that kind of stuff . Those trucks can be heavy and cameras take up a lot of room with their wires .

4,500 Applicants At Bregenz 007 Extras Casting

plus, some spoiler tidbits

Written by Heiko Baumann on 20 Jan, 2008

Bla....we all know that first hand..but not exactly all this...

As to the "casting" of cars, one could learn that te production company is looking for about 40 luxury cars, Mercedes Benz S-Class upwards.

It’s intersting that during the whole process, officials always emphasized that the casting is for a "possible shooting", as contracts for shooting the ‘Tosca’ scenes at the floating stage still aren’t signed. There have been rumours a while ago that this is because of the fact that the original opera cast was hired for stage performances but not an eventual appearance in a movie - and now they demand higher wages for it.

An intersting number of other tidbits came to light during the casting, some of which may be considered as spoilers, so if you don’t want to know anyting of those, stop reading HERE!

You still with us? Okay, the first bit is not really a spoiler. During the "cars casting", it became clear that there’s one brand that won’t be used as "extra car", as the movies bad guy (Mathieu Amalric as Dominic Greene) will use it: a Jaguar. Feldkirch will double as part of Bregenz, only a short driving scene will be shot there - no action, just something like an arrival scene, in which 007 will drive a Volvo.

As to the Tosca scenes, it was reported that the opera perfomance will be interrupted by 007 chasing a bad guy across the grandstand, through the audience. The chase will then continue in the Bregenz Festival House. The entire scene will take about 5 minutes.

Other sources report that there will be a boat chase on Lake Constance. While this may be a speculation related to the pictures of Daniel Craig practising on a speedboat, there is a bit of more solid information on boats: Leonard Gmuer told German newspapers that none of the locations scouted in Germany were picked for the movie, but that a German ship on lake Constance will play a small role.

Please, please do record! Hopefully, the whole press conference which may be as long as 90 minutes (see length of 1st feed). Probably here in US, there will be only a few minutes broadcast on some of the entertainmt programs. Thank you!
