Brad Pitt Movie Shoot Causes Farm Animals to "Go Daft" with Fear
September 15, 2015
Brad Pitt's production company is currently shooting "The Lost City of Z," a movie about a British soldier and spy who in 1925 disappeared into the Brazilian jungle with his son in search of an advanced civilization he called Z. Residents of Ballygally in Northern Ireland report that apart from shaking nearby homes with the special effects, the movie has also distressed the local farm animals, causing some to stampede and escape their enclosures. One resident commented that he does not oppose the filming, he just wants a schedule of when the shoot will be noisy so he can have time to put the animals into barns. A spokesperson for the movie commented that the crew made every effort to contact the local owners beforehand and have complied with all relevant legislation.
