Melissa McCarthy’s directorial debut hasn’t been going too smoothly.
Following her decision to fire an extra for mistreating her daughter, it seems the HIGHlarious actress has taken some added precautions on set of her upcoming comedy TAMMY!
Extras have been sternly ordered to maintain a “RESPECT FOR PRIVACY” during filming. More specifically, they must refrain from taking any photos of the actress and her co-stars, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, Dan Akroyd, and Toni Collette.
A casting agent wrote the following:
“While it’s very exciting (for all of us) to get to work with the talented cast of TAMMY, it’s very important that you all uphold the agreement you sign when you come to work on this set, that you will not take photos/videos of the set nor the actors who are working on the set. I’m asking and expecting all of my background (actors) to maintain professionalism and respect of the privacy of the script and our film making process.”
If one more disruption occurs, phones will reportedly be confiscated!!
This all sounds a bit too much like high school, but we sure hope these extras take a second look at their contracts!! This really is no laughing matter.
