The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen film cost 100 million because Sean Connery wanted 17 million of that – and a bigger explosion that the one he’d had in his last film. It’s in his contract that he has to have a bigger explosion with every film he’s in. In The Rock he’d blown up an island, and he was demanding in The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen that he blow up, was it Venice or something like that? It would have been the moon in his next movie.
