Fugitive Polanski builds fake foreign sets in Germany
Fugitive filmmaker Roman Polanski has found a cunning way to shoot his new movie in the U.S. and U.K. without landing in jail - he is building giant replicas in a German film studio.
The Polish-born director has lived in Paris, France for the past 32 years since fleeing America, after he was convicted, in 1977, of having sex with a 13-year-old girl.
His new movie The Ghost has crucial scenes set in New England and London - but Polanski is unable to return to the U.S. without being arrested, and if he sets foot in Britain he'll be extradited back to be sentenced.
So the 75-year-old is constructing look-a-like locations at the Studio Babelsberg in Potsdam-Babelsberg.
