Switching gears from politics to entertainment: New reports say Vin Diesel's temperamental behavior on the set of Babylon AD has caused massive overtime, delays, and, a nervous breakdown for the film's director.
One source on the set says, "Diesel shows up late all the time. He's laughing because he gets paid overtime for his delays. They were shooting in Prague on soundstages and were finally kicked out by another film and had to shut down for two weeks because the director had a nervous breakdown."
Babylon AD is almost a month behind schedule and an official at Film Finances Inc., which provided the completion bond for the picture, confirmed, "It has been a difficult shoot for everybody."
However, director Mathieu Kassovitz is also well-known for being difficult on the set. Some have said laid the blame squarely at this feet. "He's a different kind of director," one source says. "And doesn't always mesh with people on the set."
Why should Vin Diesel be unhappy while working in Prague? Doesn't he prefer to "date" women in Europe?
