by On Location Podcast with Jared Cowan
Eddie Murphy's 2007 film "Norbit" was a critical disaster but a gargantuan success at the box office. We sit down with the film's assistant location manager, David Lyons, at the Great Wall Chinese restaurant in Reseda, CA, the interior location for the film's Golden Wonton Restaurant and Orphanage. David discusses the ins and outs of shooting an Eddie Murphy picture on location, why "Norbit" is a troubling movie, his genuine love of filming locations, and why "Norbit" remains on his resume despite removing some of his other "assistant" credits.
Listen to Production Designer Clay Griffith starting at 17 minutes.
