Sometimes actors favorite movies seem to us real gods. It seems that human life is not peculiar to them - continuous shooting and red carpets. But in this post I want to talk about the 10 films that miraculously changed the lives of its actors.
Game of Death (1978)
At the time of his death in 1973. Bruce Lee starred in the film "Game of Death." In the original scenario, Lee had to climb five levels of stairs, demonstrating his martial art.
But during the filming of Lee died, and "Game of Death" was postponed for five years. The script has been added to the additional scene in which the character Lee shot in the face, and he had to have plastic surgery - because you can explain why one role played by two different actor. The resourcefulness of the director can not refuse, but the film received very mixed reviews.
Raul Julia was a respected actor, probably the most remarkable of his role - Gomez Addams in "The Addams Family." At the beginning of 1994 Julia got food poisoning, and in October of the same year in Los Angeles, he was admitted to hospital with a pain in the stomach.
The next film Julia had become "desperate" by Robert Rodriguez. The director even brought the script Julia patient straight to the hospital from which the actor was never released. On the day when he died, with the "Desperate" problems began: at the last minute had to replace Rodriguez Huliyu Joaquim de Almeida. It is reported that Rodriguez still remembers the day that brought the script to a hospital room, where he remained until the very end.
The Raven (1994)
Work Brandon Lee in the film "The Raven" was almost over when to him was an accident, which became the cause of his death. It should have been fired blank cartridge, but the gun barrel stuck a piece of real bullets, shot and fatally side Lee wounding him.
The problem is that Lee had almost finished the stage. Nearly. In the scene in which Lee starred in the moment of death, dying as his character Eric Draven. In that part of the scene where Draven after death falls, filmed not Lie - his face superimposed on the body of another actor. This method, which appeared just after the terrible event, is now used to "revive" dead actors in the new film.
Caravan of the East (1994)
When, during the filming of the comedy "Caravan of the East" in Mexico, John Candy died before the film crew faced a dilemma. They had to finish the film in which Candy scenario had to take a few more scenes. They resorted to the new digital technology to recreate the face of Kandy, in addition, they have found for Candy understudy with the exact figure and the other actors with the same voice.
Later, the director noted that the film will be remembered as one of the best roles of Candy. But it is seldom mentioned about.
It is known that the scoring of Unicron in "Trasformerah" was the last work of Orson Welles in the film. He died right over his typewriter, when he created a new scenario. However, there is some debate on what impact the death has had on Wells cartoon.
For years, rumors circulated that instead Wells last series of the voice actor Leonard Nimoy, but then denied rumors director Wally Burr: according to him, Wells had voice Unicron, and Nimoy nothing to do with affairs.
Years later, director Michael Bay said, half-jokingly, that Barr has a certain responsibility for the death of Wells, who allegedly forced his actors to plow eight hours a day. This is partly confirmed the actor Maurice LaMarch, and since then they quarrel with Barr.
Trail of the Pink Panther (1982)
In 1980 Peter Sellers heart stopped. With illness the actor fought for a long time, but at 54 she overcame it. Finish work on the role of the bumbling Inspector Clouseau in the film "Trail of the Pink Panther" Sellers are not managed.
Then the director Blake Edwards decided, apparently, to the end use of the actor - oddly enough, he could do with the help of five previous films about Pink Panther, which also played Sellers, the whole film. And those films Edwards did not even filmed.
But Evards in 1983, takes the "Curse of the Pink Panther" in the center of the plot which will be the "Search" Inspector Clouseau - Edwards archive remained unused footage.
Oliver Reed had a reputation as a womanizer and alcoholic. It is reported that on the night of his death, he was in the bar, which left nearly $ 900. At that time, he starred in Ridley Scott's "Gladiator».
To Reed's character on the screen also died, I had to use the understudy. The scene is the face of Reed, but in fact he was about two minutes. It cost Scott nearly $ 2 million.
Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959)
"Plan 9 from Outer Space" directed by Ed Wood was the last film, which starred Bela Lugosi - during the filming he died. In the new film from Wood's resources are not left on the adaptation of old - too. So Wood finished the film using Footage with Lugosi left over from other nedosnyatyh films like "Ghouls on the Moon».
In other scenes starred chiropractor wife Wood, Thomas Mason. His height to Lugosi does not hold, and did not look well, but the problem Wood decided - in each stage to face Mason slid over the hood of his cloak.
Well, they tried.
Chris Farley's death from an overdose in 1997, brought a lot of problems. In particular, he has not finished the work on the articulation of Shrek, "Shrek." Alternative searched for a long time, and, in the end, Shrek voiced by Mike Myers.
The rest - is history: Farley's voice has not been made public.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009)
The death of Heath Ledger was a real shock. In the movie "The Dark Knight" is not affected - the scene with the Joker were shot, but under threat was "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" Terry Gillama. Ledger played a major role, and the film at that time was far from complete.
Replacing Ledger demanded ingenuity. As a result, it was replaced not even one, but three whole actors. The first replacement was Johnny Depp, but the tight schedule did not allow him to star in all relevant stages, so we had to attract more Jude Law and Colin Farrell.
In order to somehow explain it, Gillam filmed all the scenes with their participation in the "magic mirror world" - that's why Tony in every second scene a new face.
