JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- A movie starring Denzel Washington was a little too thrilling for a Cape Town neighborhood that has experienced gang violence.
Callers to talk radio said they feared gang fights had returned to the township when they heard the sounds of automatic gunfire overnight.
Denis Lillie, head of the Cape Film Commission, said Tuesday the producers had been authorized to film a sequence involving car chases and the firing of blanks, and had informed residents in the immediate neighborhood. But he says the sound carried further than expected.
Lillie says the Cape Town community is getting "used to the fact that people want to film here."
The movie, "Safe House," is described as a crime thriller.
