I Am Legend's $5 Million Scene

Did You Know: Warner Bros spent over $5 million on just one of the scenes in I Am Legend. According to IGN, the scene was shot on location over the course of six nights in January, with the cooperation of 14 government agencies including The National Guard, the Coast Guard, and the Department of Defense, a crew of 250, and a cast of 1,000 extras. A massive lighting system was rigged up along the bridge and the waterfront to illuminate the nighttime set. The film will become the biggest movie to ever be filmed from start to finish in New York City. But nobody said shooting in the Big Apple was cheap. The film's projected budget is $150+ million.
