The Book of Eli - Photos from the Hughes Bros' Post-Apocalyptic Western

USA Today have these new photos from The Hughes Brothers‘ The Book of Eli.

It tells the story of a lone man (Denzel Washington) who fights his way across America in order to protect a mysterious sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind. The film is set in the future after the sun has exploded, leaving earth to rot.

Gary Oldman plays the villain of the piece.

Albert Hughes said "We had one scene where Denzel had to kill off one of his enemies. Right after he kills the guy, a little dust storm picks up and blows right over them. It was eerie. We're going to have people thinking an effect was computer-generated, when really it was just from shooting out here."

Washington, who shed 55 pounds for the role, recalls storms so rough that crews had to don goggles just to see what they were filming. "There's a reason there's nothing growing out here," he says. "It's land no one wants."
This film is looking good, but part of me is worried that this could end up like some kind of Waterworld.
