There has been a lot of talk about the new movie Deepwater Horizon, with many people eager to see how the movie will represent what really happened. Hollywood director Peter Berg has brought the project to the big screen, showing the events of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, which resulted in 11 workers being killed, with roughly 4.9 million barrels worth of oil spilling into the sea. However, it has not been the easiest of films to bring to life, as Peter has stated that BP, who were renting the rig at the time, tried their hardest to get the movie stopped.
 
 
Berg revealed, "BP became a very effective disruptor and prevented us getting any access to any oil rigs. We couldn’t even fly by one. At one point we were in a helicopter on a tour of a rig called the Nautilus and were told if we got any closer we would be perceived to be a threat and they were going to defend themselves. The companies exert so much power because they are such financial engines in that part of the country (America's Gulf Coast) – anyone who worked with BP basically said they couldn’t talk to us."
 
He then went on to add, "We had consultants who would work with us for a day or two, but the third day they would call in sick and we would never hear from them again. We had contracts to film on the tenders that go back and forth to the rigs – then the day before, they would say we couldn’t. It became obvious that BP was doing a great job of intimidating most of the people down in that community."
 
 
Deepwater Horizon is out now in both the US and the UK.
