Shooting of Quantum of Solace suspended after second car crash.
Maybe it’s Murphy’s law, maybe it’s the road around Lake Garda, but just days after a stunt man and his DBS ended up in the aforementioned lake, two of his colleagues crashed an Alfa Romeo 159 into a production truck. The passenger made it fine, but the driver is said to be in critical condition. Let’s hope for the best for him. A human life is worth more than a car, whatever the make is (that’s our reaction to some inconsiderate reactions we saw on some websites).
The filming as been stopped while the scene is under investigation. The driver was experienced, but the road is windy and dangerous for this kind of high speed scenes: “They chose this road because it is full of curves and tunnels. It will give the film a lot of impact,” said Marco Girardi, spokeman for the town of Limone sul Garda.
