Winstone Fumes At Moving London To Romania

British actor RAY WINSTONE is furious he has to jet to Romania to film new movie SWEENEY TODD - because it's set in his native London.

The English capital is being moved abroad because it's cheaper to shoot there, but the movie hardman is incensed British workers are denied the chance of working on the BBC project.

He fumes, "We start filming in August - in Romania. It's ironic, but the state of the British film industry means I can't afford to make it in England, so the streets of London are being recreated in Romania.

"It's stupid. It means 300 people who would have got jobs on the film and paid their taxes in this country have missed out. It really kills me."
