LATEST: BRAD PITT and ROBERT REDFORD have been forced to relocate to Britain - after a real war threatened their war film.
The Hollywood pair were shooting director TONY SCOTT's espionage thriller THE SPY GAME in Israel - but the mounting Israeli- Palestinian conflict led to fears for the stars' safety.
A spokesman for the production says, "You have to think of not just the safety of the stars, but the entire crew. In any case, I think the money and the insurance have been jumping up and down, going nuts at the prospect of filming in a war zone." The CIA thriller has reportedly been relocated to the much calmer Shepperton Studios, outside London. (NFA/WNWCEM)
