Um, I'm a bit skeptical. Where did you hear this? Weapons Specialists Ltd. (supplied weapons for the movie) has permits to use live weapons (semi-auto and full-auto) in NYC. They have to have handlers on-set with the guns at all times, but they certainly can (and have) filmed in NYC with them.also whats so funny is that this movie being shot in NYC had to comply with NYC gun laws. The rifle was single shot (no automatic) only and mags of no more 10 rounds. The filmed good parts of it around my office, so I got to watch some of the filming. They did a great job with Saint Patrick's cathedral with making it look run down too!
As I remember it the Ruger was used when the Jazz Player was assassinated.Ruertar, the gun used in Collateral was a regular old USP 45. However, one thing I just noticed the other day was one of the Collateral promotional posters shows him holding an integrally suppressed Ruger Mark II (the kind from the movie Assassins). I don't remember seeing this in the movie, however I'm thinking it may be the one he used in the Jazz player scene.
We will likely have to wait on it coming out on DVD, but given the book it is based on "Last Man On Earth" and it's a remake of the movie "The Omega Man" I don't expect him to live. Maybe a different death and not as sudden?So there is an alternate ending to I AM LEGEND? I thought the lab sucked!
