Jerry Bruckheimer's 'Deja Vu' film loses site and director Tony Scott
UPI News Service, 10/05/2005
Director Tony Scott has left Jerry Bruckheimer's "Deja Vu" due to scheduling and logistical problems.
The Touchstone Pictures film was supposed to start shooting Tuesday in New Orleans, but damage left by Hurricane Katrina sent officials scouting for a new location, Daily Variety reported Wednesday.
The shooting delay left Scott having to bow out of the project, a spokesman for the director said.
Denzel Washington stars in the film originally set in San Francisco. The move out of Louisiana is expected to raise the projected $75 million price tag, Variety said.
A Bruckheimer spokesman said the film will probably start shooting in January but could start sooner depending on when a new director is found.
"Deja Vu" is about an FBI agent who travels through time to prevent a murder.
