BON JOVI'S SUBMARINE MOVIE BACK ON COURSE
(MAR. 7) WENN - THIRD - HOLLYWOOD, SHOWBIZ & PEOPLE NEWS - Rocker JON BON JOVI's new war movie U-571 is back on course after a major script and cast overhaul.
Filming on the $80 million movie, producer DINO DE LAURENTIIS' 600th, got underway last summer (98) in Malta when a marine filming team from TITANIC started pre-production shooting in new giant water tanks at the Mediterranean Film Studios.
But since then, the names of original stars HARRISON FORD, NICOLAS CAGE and MICHAEL DOUGLAS have been replaced by Bon Jovi and a younger cast - and the script has been re-written five times.
Filming in Malta, which began last week, is said to be on schedule and "a lot of fun" with De Laurentiis returning to the island where he filmed ORCA THE KILLER WHALE in the 1970s.
Four life-size submarines have been built for the purpose of the movie, which follows the story of the underwater struggle between Germany and the Allies in World War Two.
