Lack Of Snow Haults Diesel's New Film

VIN DIESEL's new movie BABYLON AD has started filming again after a lack of snow and on-set issues brought the shoot in the Czech Republic to a standstill last month (FEB07). A stunt co-ordinator and other crew members have been replaced and now producer ILAN GOLDMAN and director MATHIEU KASSOVITZ are confident the movie is "back on track". Goldman tells trade paper Daily Variety, "When you make a costly, ambitious film (like this), it is always complicated... We took a two-week break to sort these things out." The snow problem came when the production moved to Iceland to film wintry scenes, only to discover there wasn't enough natural snow. Goldman and Kassovitz are still looking for a snowbound European location where they can shoot the scenes over the course of a week. The film's two-week delay has put added pressure on the producers, who have been told they'll have to vacate their soundstages at Prague's Barrandov Studios to make way for construction work on THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: PRINCE CASPIAN, which is set to start shooting there at the beginning of April (07).
