Snow Shuts Fantastic Four Sequel Down
Filming on the Fantastic Four sequel in Vancouver, Canada was shut down yesterday (27NOV06) - by a snowstorm. Cast members Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis were told to stay in their hotel rooms when freezing temperatures brought shooting to a halt. Welsh actor Gruffudd, who plays MR FANTASTIC, says, "We were supposed to be shooting at the studio but we lost power because of the snowstorm." He and his castmates made the most of their unexpected time off - by staging a snowball fight. Gruffudd adds, "We had a titanic snowball fight outside a restaurant and we were asked to leave the premises - that's how big the snowball fight was."
