"Salt" is Riskiest Film of 2010

Angelina Jolie’s “Salt” was the riskiest movie to insure in 2010 according to Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co, the leading insurer of Hollywood films for more than 85 years.  

Salt,” featured Angelina Jolie as Evelyn Salt, a CIA officer accused of being a Russian spy who must prove her innocence. Jolie performed her own stunts, including fight scenes, riding a motorcycle, jumping off a bridge, and handling a number of weapons.

“Whenever an actor chooses to do their own stunts it increases the film’s risk because you have an actor doing that rather than a professional stunt person,” said Lauren Bailey, vice president of entertainment at Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company. “These types of scenes contribute appreciably to a film’s overall risk and Fireman’s Fund helps by creating solutions to cover specific exposures.”

Fireman’s Fund helps production companies manage unexpected risks by working closely with the studios to ensure the safety of all participants while still achieving the director’s artistic vision.
