GULFPORT, Miss. - A union representative says the production of "Artists Die Best in Black" will replace the crew filming in south Mississippi because they may seek union representation.

The Sun Herald reports that shooting, which began in mid-June, is set to run about five weeks.

Scott Harbinson is with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts.

He told the Sun Herald that producer that Billy Badalato and film financier Paul Bongé announced to crew members they were flying in replacements from Los Angeles this week.

Elaine Stevens, a Coast publicist working with the movie, said in a statement from Badalato that he has to confer with other executives before commenting.
