Sienna Miller's life is full of drama. If she's not attacking the paparazzi, she's hooking upwith a new guy, or both. Now comes word that extra security has been hired to help protect Sienna on the set of her new film "Interview," reports Ireland Online. But why the need for extra security? Well, it seems like Muslim fundamentalists may have a problem with the movie.
The film is a remake of Theo van Gogh's 2003 thriller and a tribute to Van Gogh, who was murdered by Mohammed Bouyeri in 2004 after his controversial film Submission sparked anger among the Muslim community.
Although Interview has no connection to Islam, there are concerns the association with Van Gogh will trigger another outcry.
A member of the production team says: "We are very much aware that it requires a high level of security.
"We will ensure Sienna and her co-star Steve Buscemi are given the sort of protection that this project requires."
All Sienna needs to do now is doodle a couple pictures of Mohammed, and she'll be at the centre of an international religious uproar. I hope she keeps her head down on this one. The paparazzi are one thing, but I'm pretty sure she isn't prepared for a Fatwa.
