Finding Jeremy Renner: It’s not stalking if the SWAT guys don’t take away your camera, PART 2

This is part two a fan account of a visit to the filming of The Bourne Legacy in Navotas fish port last January 25. You can read part one here, and the previous entry in this series here.

So, yeah, we went all the way to the Navotas fish port and got photos of Jeremy Renner’s back.

If Rachel Weisz was on that set, we didn’t see her. At least, we couldn’t confirm that we saw her. I was taking photos of every non-Pinoy person on the set, just in case I’d get lucky and catch an actor or the director in a photo. This is either Rachel or her body double. She had security with her, so it could be her, but my friend Razdy said she should be skinnier (not that MaybeRachel Weisz was fat; she looked quite fit). But then, she may have been hooked up to a harness under her clothes.

Hey, Mr. Bodyguard, Y U reading Ms. Weisz's text messages?

No sighting of Edward Norton either. I figured Edward Norton was skinny, so I shot a pic of this guy, who turned out not to be him. We call him NotEdward Norton.

Every time we saw him and his companion while we were walking around the port after the crew shooed us off before they started filming, we’d go, “Hey, there’s NotEdward Norton!” We had no idea who he and his companion were — they didn’t have any IDs, but they walked from inside the cordoned-off filming area, so we figured maybe they were actors too. I’ll know when I see the movie, I guess.

So, yes, at some point, the crew shooed us away. We figured they were going to start shooting soon because right before that, there was a lot of activity — equipment was getting rolled in, and more people were walking around waving their arms.

And some guy who looked like he could be Jeremy’s stunt double (same stocky build, similar hair color) put on some kind of harness.

At that point I was so happy just having seen Jeremy Renner and MaybeRachel Weisz (all right, fine, it was nice to see you too, NotEdward Norton), I didn’t really mind. Besides, they may be including that part of the market in the shot (vendors were selling all sorts of seafood, basins of squid and fish on the ground), and they didn’t need a bunch of camera-wielding stalkers fans standing there gaping at the cast.

So we left and walked around outside the port authority office grounds, where the tents (in lieu of trailers, as the latter would’ve taken too much space, I suppose) and trucks were set up.

And, hey, the wardrobe trucks!

At that point we figured we wouldn’t be able to see anything till they finish the actual filming for the day. Unfortunately, we couldn’t stay there that long because we had to get back to work and I was meeting a friend for dinner at Eastwood (I was hoping the smell of fish didn’t stick to my clothes or anything). So we called it a day and headed back. They were shooting at the fish port again sometime in February, but I’d be out of town, so the plan was to go to the shoot in Intramuros the next day.

So, what do you think ?
