Good Luck.
movie produced by Hollywood actor Brad Pitt has made headlines for scaring farm animals. Filming is taking place in countryside in Northern Ireland in U.K. The movie is called 'The Lost City of Z' and is set in 1920s. It is about British soldier and spy who disappeared into Brazilian jungle in 1925 with his son. They were searching for lost civilisation, which soldier called Z. He was never seen again. Film makers needed to create explosions and other loud noises for movie's special effects. However, locals and farmers in town of Ballygally complained that loud bangs frightened their animals. No one knows if Mr Pitt was in town at the time as he is not acting in the film.

Local people in town said explosions began on September 14 and gradually became bigger and louder. Some locals said it sounded like there was war going on as noise shook windows in houses. One farmer spoke to reporters about how his animals were "terrified". He said: "The dog was shivering under chair and hens had all gone. Then I heard there had been another explosion while I was out….Another neighbour’s cow and calf jumped hedge and cows were crying in fear." Mr Pitt may do something special for local people as he is famous animal rights activist and might be upset if he heard animals had suffered because of his film.
