Shooting on Russell Crowe's
western remake 3:10 To Yuma
came to a standstill when a freak storm blanketed the New Mexico set with snow.
Crowe is joined by Christian Bale
and Ben Foster
in the re-telling of the classic 1957 movie, but the plot's drought backdrop was put in jeopardy by freezing weather conditions during filming.
Speaking at Sunday's Comic-Con in San Diego, California, director James Mangold
told how truckloads of dirt had to be brought in to cover the snow scene.
The cast was also issued with handwarmers to endure the biting cold.
