R.I. governor not amused by 'Underdog' filming
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr..._id=1002915516PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- They removed a historic chandelier and put down a false floor in the Statehouse rotunda. They replaced lamps with Greco-Roman statues and constructed a false front to the Senate Chamber. But when crews filming the Disney move "Underdog" replaced the state flag flying over Rhode Island's Statehouse with one from a fictional city, that was the last straw for Gov. Don Carcieri. The governor, who ordered the fake flag removed immediately, now says he will scrutinize more closely any future plans to use the building as a TV or movie set after nearly a month of disruptions by the filming of the live action version of the 1960s cartoon. "I don't think in the future it's appropriate to take apart the inside of the Statehouse to do this filming," Carcieri told reporters. (AP)
