Robbery Prompts The Rundown Director To Relocate
Movie maker PETER BERG was forced to make a last-minute location change for THE ROCK's new movie THE RUNDOWN - after he was robbed in the Amazon.
The COP LAND star decided to give the action comedy an authentic touch by shooting in Brazil, but he quickly realised that wasn't a good idea when he was robbed at gunpoint.
Wrestler-turned-movie star The Rock, real name DWAYNE JOHNSON, says, "He was held up by this 350 pound, big fat guy who was wearing flip-flops, Speedos and a flak jacket."
Berg, who finally decided to relocate to Hawaii, adds, "It's bad enough when they're robbing you with guns but you don't understand a word they're saying."29/09/2003 09:30
