Lost Producers Upset About Destroyed Footage
The producers of hit TV drama LOST have been handed an expensive headache after film canisters featuring master footage was erased by an airport X-ray machine.
The show bosses are still trying to figure out who to blame for the costly mistake, which could leave them having to spend an extra $300,000 (GBP154,000) to reshoot the scenes on the destroyed film.
According to sources, film of the show accidentally went through an X-ray machine at Honolulu International Airport in Hawaii, where the series is shot - and was wiped.
Lost producers claim security personnel at the airport are to blame because they didn't take note of warning labels asking them not to put the film canisters through an X-ray machine.
But airport insiders state the film canisters were mistakenly mixed in with passenger luggage, leading to the error.
