Cruise movie rolling again

Cadiz - The shooting of a Tom Cruise movie was resumed on Wednesday in southern Spain after being suspended when bulls featuring in the film injured two people.

Filming of Knight and Day, starring Cruise and Cameron Diaz, was progressing "normally" in Cadiz after security walls against bulls were reinforced, the production company Calle Cruzada said.

Scenes featuring bulls were due to be filmed on Thursday, with the actors' stunt doubles "fleeing" in a spectacle imitating the northern Spanish Pamplona bull runs.

City authorities suspended the shooting on Sunday when seven bulls ran loose and injured two passers-by. The bull which first broke through a security wall has been excluded from the set, media reports said on Wednesday.

The production company did not say when Cruise and Diaz would arrive in Cadiz.

In the Pamplona bull runs, daredevil men run with the beasts in the city every morning for a week in July. The spectacle was made famous by Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises.

    Can we send the poor bull earmarked to be ripped to pieces by so-called 'men' to the film set instead? I could source a rabid lion to be used instead- that should sort the 'men' from the boys - permanently.
