IESB Reports on Visit to Book of Eli Set

Dark skies, torrential winds blowing dirt and sand everywhere (and I mean everywhere), visibility is down to almost nil, throw in a half blown up house and a Gatling gun on the back of a truck. Is this the end of the world?

Nope, just the set of Warner Bros.' BOOK OF ELI starring Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman in Albuquerque, New Mexico in April!

Directed by brothers Albert and Allen Hughes, Book of Eli which also stars Ray Stevenson, Mila Kunis and Michael Gambon tells the story of a lone warrior (Washington) who must fight to bring society the knowledge that could be the key to its redemption. Oldman has been set to portray Carnegie, the despot of a small makeshift town who's determined to take possession of the book Eli's guarding with Stevenson as his thug. The only guide on Eli's journey is Solara (Kunis), Carnegie's estranged step-daughter, who only Eli can see and hear...wait, that's not right. In any case, there's an important book, samurai swords and at least one Gatling gun, what more could you ask for?

Here's the official film description from WB -

In the not-too-distant future, some 30 years after the final war, a solitary man walks across the wasteland that was once America. Empty cities, broken highways, seared earth--all around him, the marks of catastrophic destruction. There is no civilization here, no law. The roads belong to gangs that would murder a man for his shoes, an ounce of water...or for nothing at all.

But they're no match for this traveler.
