CNY Movie Starring Lou Ferrigno Resolves Issues, Set to Resume
The troubled production of a Syracuse movie starring Lou Ferrigno has reportedly resolved its issues and will resume shooting.
The 'Incredible Hulk' actor, along with the rest of the cast and crew, went home in late August after reports of unpaid wages and an injury to one of The Hermit's principal actors.
The Hermit's producer Gerry Pass told a local media outlet that most of the cast and crew will be returning to finish the film. He also said $24,000 worth of equipment had been stolen from the set, compounding the controversies.
The word back in August was that The Hermit's financial backers only provided a fraction of the $200,000 needed to complete the film. Pass says he's secured additional funding so that filming can continue.
Also making headlines from those troubled August days on set was an injury to actress Malina Weissman, who got superglue in her eye. A small knife had to be used to cut her eyelashes and she was unable to shoot her scenes for several days.
Weissman is best known for her role as Violet Baudelaire in A Series of Unfortunate Events and Kara Jor-El on Supergirl.
Pass said the footage from the scenes already shot looks "amazing." It will be interesting to see how the weather affects the rest of production. The landscape in Central New York looks much different than it did back in August.
As they say in a very popular HBO series... "Winter is coming."
