Morgan Freeman's latest film-making venture frightened residents in Bulgarian capital Sofia after the crew built an American graveyard in the city's Yuzhen (Southern) Park.

People taking a stroll through Sofia's second largest park were horrified to find graves displaying the names of American people, which had been constructed for Morgan's forthcoming film THE CONTRACT.

Freeman and co-star John Cusack have been filming the crime thriller in Bulgaria since July (05) and are due to leave next month (SEP05). The movie is directed by Double Jeopardy film-maker Bruce Beresford.
