Jon Favreau, director of the upcoming Iron Man film, announced on his MySpace group that principle production on the film has ended. The director also (indirectly) addressed rumors circulating about Hilary Swank having a cameo in the film.
From the post:
Principal photography ended with a huge bang as we filmed the final scenes of Iron Man in Caesar’s Palace. As many of you already know, gambling is a casino’s top priority. A production can not interfere with their cash cow. As a result, movies must shoot during the dead hours, no matter if it’s Swingers or Rain Man. We were given a window of midnight to one the next afternoon to do all of our work. Part of our strategy to prepare for these ungodly hours was to stay up as late as possible the night before and sleep as late as possible. I did half the plan. The wrong half. I stayed out until 7AM and then woke up four hours later. After motoring through the delerium of a sleepless shooting marathon, I am proud to report that we have handily completed our movie on time and on budget. What a great way to end.
I would also like to thank Ceasars for their hospitality, generosity, and Swank accommodations
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeff Bridges, Iron Man is set to release on May 2, 2008.
