Iron Man director Jon Favreau has announced the end of principal photography on his MySpace group, and indirectly confirmed rumors that Hilary Swank will have a cameo in the film.
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 accomodations.
Meanwhile, a possible new promo site has gone up at StarkIronWorks.com.
The May 2, 2008 release stars Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeff Bridges.
