Ewan McGregor Received Death Threat from Extra

Posted: December 25th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Ewan McGregor Received Death Threat from ExtraSubmit Comment
Ewan McGregor's "The Impossible" has been shooting in Thailand, but production came to a halt after the actor received a death threat on the set of the film.

An unnamed extra was found in McGregor's trailer writing threats in the form of a poem to him. The poem, which described McGregor's death, included the line: "Twisting the knife as I look into your eyes."

The Herald Sun quoted a crew member saying: "We could not call Thai police because the man had only written poetry, and they would be unlikely to understand. Instead there was no confrontation."

The extra was told that he would not be needed for a week and that he would be called at a later time. He was not called. The producers decided that he was a serious risk.

"I understand he later applied for a position on 'Scorpion King 3' which is filming in Thailand at the moment," added the crew member. "I hope there is no further problem."

If he was using Catcher in the Rye as flat edge to write on then i would get out of Thailand quick if i were you Ewan.

"Twisting the knife as I look into your eyes."

Sounds like love letters I get from my ex-bitches.

So there was a Scorpion King 2? Lord have mercy.

The death threat came in the form of a poem ?

Why not an antedote ? Why not a riddle ?

Why not a limmerick ?

Why not an amusing joke ?

Are you kidding me ? It's not even that eloquent a poem. It sounds like a love letter Chez gives Jake_Upinsomeman'sass, right before they swap spit then toss each others salads for Christmas.

'Is that your special dressing?'

'Why yes Jake... mmmm... it is!'

If Ewan needs protection, why doesn't he just hire David Carradine? The guy has martial arts skills and last time I checked, he was in Thail...

...whoops, forgetful me.
