A selection of funny cases from filming movies

A selection of the most curious things from the shooting of films.
What did not happen while filming!
Since the police are somehow present in many films regardless of the genre, and the situation with the law enforcement officers have a special place in a series of curiosities. So during the filming of the movie "Leon" there was such a case. A fleeing thief after a robbery and came across a cordon of extras in police uniforms. Realizing his hopeless situation, the thief surrendered to the "policeĀ».

During the filming of a robbery scene in one of the shops for the thriller "27 killed" suddenly appeared alongside the police, which is aimed at actors' service weapon, ordered them to quit "gun" to the ground and then handcuffed. It turned out that trade in the store did not stop during filmmakers (well not to lose the profits), and one of the visitors decided to make a joke, causing outfit.

And in Norway, during the filming of adult operators accidentally filmed footage of the robbery. The incident occurred in the midst of the work crew in one of the apartments in the center of Oslo. One of the operators casually looked out the window and saw that next to the house, three armed bandits attacked a van collectors. The operator immediately turned the camera to the actors on the robbers managed to shoot almost the entire stage a robbery. The police confiscated all the videos. By the way, the film was never completed.

And to complete the police topics such history. Jason Steytem once said that while filming thriller "The Bank Job" (the real crime that happened in 1971), he consulted with one of the participants in a robbery.

Michael Madsen in the film "Escape" helped Alec Baldwin completely different, but no less effective way. Alec Baldwin in one of the scenes had to portray the great surprise, but he did not succeed. Then Madsen at the right moment undid his pants and showed him ...., well, in general, that it was there to stay. Amazement was great and sincere. Shooting on this episode has ended successfully.

And finally, a strange story that happened, though not during the making of the film, but still having a direct relation to it. About three years ago with actor Robert Pattinson, who played in the movie "Twilight" vampire, there was such a case. Being in one of the bars of New York, Pattinson had a row with one of the visitors and bit him right behind the neck. Stunned, the man did not even bother to apply for an actor to the court (as is customary in the US), to the extent he was shocked by what happened.
