Los Angeles, Nov 5 (IANS) Actors Angelina Jolie and Richard Madden were evacuated from the set of “The Eternals” after a bomb was found in the area.

According to a report in thesun.co.uk, the base on the Canary Island of Fuerteventura, had to be evacuated to allow bomb disposal experts to disarm the device. It is believed that it was left over from a Nazi World War II base, reports dailymail.co.uk.

“It was obviously terrifying — the bomb could have been there for decades untouched but who knows what might have happened if it was disturbed. Some of the biggest stars in the world were on set and nobody was taking any chances. Fortunately, experts dealt with it,” said a source.
