New film to involve real bull torturing

PETA has received word that a new film, Manolete, starring Adrian Brody and Penelope Cruz, will contain scenes of bullfighting in which real bulls will be tortured and killed. PETA has contacted the producers and director of the film but has received no response despite the advisement that no response would be taken as confirmation that they will be abusing and killing real bulls.

On the other hand, the 2005 film The Matador used carefully crafted computer-generated images (CGI) and stock footage of past bullfights rather than harming more bulls. PETA is asking people to contact the producer and director and urge them not to contribute to the horrific cruelty of bullfighting but to opt instead for CGI technology, which provides the look of a bullfight without requiring additional cruelty and killing. The movie is scheduled to start filming in March, so time is of the essence. You can find Peta's model letter here as well as the contacts to address them to.

I say also contact the actors involved' fan clubs and agents/publicists and ask them to put pressure to change the methods of filming so they don't involve the torture of bulls.
