UPDATE 5/2/11 Though the statement released by Marvel Studios today (below), is being batted about all over the web as possibly being a ploy, a conspiracy or a cover-up, OneHeadlightInk.com can confirm:
The Avengers production moved ahead in Albuquerque today, business as usual. Samuel Jackson is here, film actually rolled – CONFIRMED
Reports were flying this morn’ that a New Mexican or at least someone in Samuel L. Jackson’s beloved Nuevo Mexico had perpetrated a crime against all that is holy in the superhero world by HIGHjacking from Sam one of the most coveted scripts in comic movie history…
Like the much lored tale of the then latest version of the iPhone being
planted stoopidly left behind in a coffee shop or brew haus…this here story is sure to be chalk full of twists and turns.
News ~broke last week that media outlets were being offered the buy. This weekend it has been confirmed that production of the blockbuster in the making is halted until further notice and sources tell Film Fan Review that the script indeed remains on the loose BUT WAS NOT STOLEN from New Mexico USA but rather lifted in either Burbank or Los Angeles California, UFO.
Mama smells stunt and/or rewrites from the production that is sure to yield many of both…in any case this should not go down in the annals of New Mexico Film history as a black eye on our great state…
Unless fiscal opportunist “Harry” Winston Brooks or NM Film
seductress Saboteur Susana don’t each have a solid alibi….
UPDATE 5PM (MST): Several NM Set Insiders are stating to us that they have received no notification of a production breach or break and will be reporting to their jobs at next call.
UPDATE 5/2/11 Marvel Studios has released this statement:
“Filming for ‘The Avengers’ is active, on schedule and going well,”
