New Line keeps ‘Domino’ theory

Scott pic remains set despite recent tragedy

New Line and director Tony Scott won’t be changing “Domino,” despite the recent death of the film’s subject, model-turned-bounty hunter Domino Harvey.

Pic, which stars Keira Knightley as Harvey, has been set for an Aug. 19 release. Harvey, 35, was found dead Monday in the bathtub of her West Hollywood home. She had been arrested last month in connection with a drug-trafficking sting in Mississippi.

Harvey, the daughter of actor Laurence Harvey, worked as a Ford model, nightclub operator and firefighter before going to work for a Los Angeles bail bond agency as a bounty hunter. The feature, produced by Scott and Samuel Hadida, began shooting last October with Jacqueline Bisset, Christopher Walken and Mickey Rourke also starring.

“Domino never failed to surprise or inspire me over the last 12 years,” Scott said in a statement. “She was a free spirit like no other I have ever known.”

New Line recently moved “Domino” from August to November but then decided to return the pic to August for two reasons — to avoid going up against Focus’ “Pride and Prejudice,” which also stars Knightley, and to take advantage of Knightley’s availability to promote the pic between shooting the “Pirates of the Caribbean” sequels.
