Bonus Feature Cliché Lookout: Behind the Scenes Problems
Accidents can happen anywhere, but when they happen on the set of a movie or television show (or a LEGO® webcomic about zombies), they can have far-reaching consequences, well beyond the victim(s) and their friends and family.
Don’t believe me? What’s the first thing you think of when I mention the film The Crow? If you’re like most people, it’s the tragic death of actor Brandon Lee thanks to an improperly loaded prop gun. You might also think of awful, awful sequels, but the less said about them the better.
While The Crow managed to be completed and find moderate success up release (and significant cult success later on), that’s likely only because Lee’s accident happened near the end of production. Had he died earlier in the making of the movie, it’s likely the whole thing would have been scrapped, affecting everyone involved with the production.
Kind of a dark backstory for a Bonus Feature, but there you have it.
About this Episode:
I really like this cop minifigure. He just looks like a smug jerk, and I love it.
Also, I just couldn’t resist adding a joke in the background. I don’t know why, but I’m just really making that poor zombie actor suffer. Even in death the guy doesn’t get a chance at dignity.
Yatkuu’s incredible build of Shaun of the Dead‘s Winchester Tavern is picking up steam on Cuusoo, but it’s still got a hell of a long ways to go. Haven’t voted yet? Get on it!
