If you remember, the pre-production road for The Tourist was riddled with potholes. Right now, with Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, Johnny Depp, and Angelina Jolie, it sounds like a must-see feature with Oscar winners and talent abounding. But it wasn't always that way. Originally, it had a whole different feel with Tom Cruise and Charlize Theron. Then it was Angelina Jolie and Sam Worthington, and then there were creative differences that had Worthington and Donnersmarck out before Depp stepped in and then the director returned.

The whole drama leaves one wondering what creative differences would send Worthington out only to be replaced by Depp, and just what -- if anything -- changed to bring Donnersmarck back. But whatever happened, production has finally begun and the first official image is after the jump, leading one to wonder when Sirius Black came back to life.
