Domino (extra)

GM! I had a couple too many Marguiritas last night so my posts won't be very long today. The first is a news extra concerning a movie coming out this fall:

Domino Harvey, the inspiration for New Line's upcoming film Domino, died in her Los Angeles home on the evening of June 27. Harvey was the daughter of legendary actor Laurence Harvey and a former model who rejected her privileged Beverly Hills life to become a bounty hunter.

"Domino never failed to surprise or inspire me over the last 12 years. She was a free spirit like no other I have ever known," said director Tony Scott.

"We were enormously saddened to hear of Domino's untimely passing. She and I had been conferring about her music to be used in the film only weeks ago. I know I speak for all of us on the movie's cast and crew when I say how much we enjoyed her presence on set when she visited. And although our film is not intended as a biographical piece, hers was the dynamic personality and indomitable spirit that spawned an exciting adventure, not just on screen, but in real life," producer Samuel Hadida added.

New Line had moved Domino from August to November, but the studio has returned the action-thriller to August 19 in order to avoid going up against Universal's Pride and Prejudice, also starring Knightley, and because Knightley will be available at that time to promote the film between shooting the "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels.

Domino features a diverse ensemble cast including Mickey Rourke, Edgar Ramirez, Delroy Lindo, Mena Suvari, Lucy Liu, Christopher Walken, Jacqueline Bisset, Mo'Nique and Macy Gray.
