Thanks to Jon Favreau's regular tweeting, he's given us a nifty breakdown on the first week of filming of "Iron Man 2."
He's also let us know how he'll spend Easter weekend by posting this today at 3:29 PM: "Happy Good Friday. I will spend it working on the script and prepping for next week's work."
We also learn that Mickey Rourke has been on-set for at least two days; he's playing the villain Whiplash. (To learn about the comic book original, click here.) T
ake it away, Jon:
4:17 PM April 6 — Lunch! Boy it's great to be back at work. Many familiar faces in cast and crew. I am so blessed to do what I love with wonderful people.
11:44 PM April 6 — First day went great. I've never worked on a sequel before. It's like we picked up where we left off.
10:34 AM April 7 — Day 2. Slept like a rock. Finally. Not used to these long hours.
5:58 PM April 7 — Swarm of paparazzi on set.
10:59 PM April 7 — Wrapped day two. Time for some sleep. So great to work with Garry.
[Cary here: "Garry" refers to Garry Shandling, who will be playing Sen. Stern, whoever that is.]
4:33 PM April 8 — Mickey Roarke's first day.
6:59 PM April 8 — Rourke does not disappoint.
1:24 AM April 9 — Stayed late to watch dailies. It's great to see these characters come to life.
12:04 PM April 9 — Day four begins. More Mickey.
3:13 PM April 9 — Sorry I can't post Twitpics at this time. Tight leash on images from the set. I'll post what I can when I can.
About 1 AM April 10 — Wrapped. End of week one. Will spend the long weekend prepping for next week's work and relaxing with the family.
A long weekend? Huh. Must be nice.
