CHAOS ON SET
Jamie is co-starring in a new Hollywood blockbuster alongside Cameron Diaz, but the production was recently plunged into further chaos after an unexploded World War II bomb was found on set, The U.S. Sun revealed.
The production crew was planning to film two huge stunts, including a major explosion, but they had to be canceled after the bomb was discovered.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars of the movie’s budget were wasted after filming was canceled at East London’s Royal Docks.
A source said: “The production expected the scene to go off with a bang — but nobody could have predicted it would all be derailed by a bomb.
“The stunt was booked to take place last month at the dock. A 24-meter barrier was being erected into the river, where the explosion would take place.
“But it was during the building of the set that they believed they found what they thought to be an unexploded bomb in the water.
“Safety was the main priority, so after speaking with the police and relevant authorities, the whole thing was canceled.
“Naturally, that part of the river is never normally disturbed, so it’s been left as it is.”
It’s believed that there are around 100,000 tons of unexploded ordnance in waters around the UK from both World Wars.
London was the main target for Nazi bombers during the Blitz.
The U.S. Sun’s movie insider added: “The cancellation was a massive blow to the film, which has already experienced a few issues.
“After the two stunts were canned, they were filmed on a green screen at Longcross Studios in Surrey.
“It cost a huge amount of money and was a massive headache for everyone involved.”
