Ohura, population 165, is being tipped to be one of the locations for Bad Boys III, the third in the Bad Boys action franchise starring Smith and Martin Lawrence. Bonny Johnson, operator of the local Jailhouse Cafe, told the Taranaki Daily News the Auckland owners of the town's former prison were in talks with the Bad Boys producers, about shooting there. The secluded prison complex, which had originally been a miners' hostel, and closed in 2003, was perfect for a film shoot, Ms Johnson said. "They said that the biggest problem with filming is the problems they have with outside people and security - whereas with this one they can block the whole thing off," Ms Johnson said. Talks had been going on for about four months, she added, but there was no word on when filming would happen. "They are saying they will use it, but `we will use it when we want to use it'." I doubt this, something would of been said in the trades...likely for "John Hancock" Edited July 11, 2007 by Radewart Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
