Barely a week afterCasino Royale filmingstarted, angry residents of the Czech capital Prague have handed a petition to officials at the town hall demanding they take action to stop the noise caused by the movie.
According to Fox News, residents living around the studio where the movie is being filmed, are complaining that their lives have turned hell with the noise of the stretch limos carrying the stars and huge lorries carrying stage props.
Officials at the local council are also admitting that they have been plagued by non-stop phone calls by cantankerous residents telling them to put a stop to the noise.
The council, after sending experts to the studio, is now backing the residents, and has ordered controls on the comings and goings around the Modrany film studio.
Though the production company, Stillking, insists that the noise and traffic levels are within the agreed limits, it has still assured locals that it will take more care in future to avoid upsetting them.
Filming at the Modrany studio is scheduled to continue for the next 10 days after which, the movie will then be shot at Strahov monastery before the crews move to the Bahamas.
