Paparazzi Turned The Tourist Shoot Into 'Nightmare' For Producer King

Film producer GRAHAM KING faced a "nightmare" shoot working with ANGELINA JOLIE and JOHNNY DEPP on new movie THE TOURIST - because the paparazzi chased the stars everywhere they went.
The Hollywood heavyweights team up on the big screen for the upcoming thriller and relocated to Venice, Italy for part of the production.
But filming scenes around the picturesque city's Grand Canal proved to be a tough task for director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck and producer King, because the leading stars are such hot property for the world's media.
So King was forced to move the production into the studio, where they used modern technology to recreate the scenery for the more pivotal scenes.
He tells Entertainment Weekly, "I remember standing on a bridge by the Grand Canal one morning and Johnny and Angelina were coming to the set on their boats, and behind them was a fleet of paparazzi on their boats. It was a nightmare.
"I remember freaking out the first week of shooting, thinking, 'How are we going to keep this movie from the press?' But in today's world there's a lot you can do with the green screen. You can put up a black tent and fill it in later."
