War Horse & PETA
Contrary to the excesses (on- and off-set) of the new TV show, Luck, the producers of War Horse (the movie, not the play) ensured the safety of the horses on-set. According to PETA, Spielberg and co-producer Kennedy, did everything to accommodate the horses, using computer-generated graphics in many cases. In contrast, PETA’s appeal to the producers of Luck (one of whom is Dustin Hoffman), went for naught, and at least one horse had to be euthanized on-set after the filming of a dangerous scene. We have the technology, people, why don’t you use it?
