RIP: Domino Harvey

06.29.2005

Domino Harvey, the model-turned-bounty hunter and subject of the upcoming Keira Knightley film DOMINO, died on Monday in Los Angeles at the age of 35. She was found in her Los Angeles home and taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital where she was pronounced dead. Back in May Harvey was arrested and charged with conspiracy to distribute drugs, possession, trafficking and racketeering. Around that same time New Line announced the film would be pushed back to November 4th (it has since shifted again to November 23rd). UPDATE - New Line has announced the DOMINO will return to its original August release date. The studio said the move wasn't related to the death of Ms. Harvey but was done because of the availability of Keira Knightley to promote the film while on break from PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2 & 3. DOMINO director Tony Scott said in a statement, "Domino never failed to surprise or inspire me over the last 12 years. She was a free spirit like no other I have ever known.” Producer Samuel Hadida added, "We were enormously saddened to hear of Domino’s untimely passing. She and I had been conferring about her music to be used in the film only weeks ago. I know I speak for all of us on the movie’s cast and crew when I say how much we enjoyed her presence on set when she visited. And although our film is not intended as a biographical piece, hers was the dynamic personality and indomitable spirit that spawned an exciting adventure, not just on screen, but in real life." Harvey is the daughter of legendary actor Laurence Harvey and a former model who rejected her privileged Beverly Hills life to become a bounty hunter, according to the synopsis for the film. No word yet on what impact the death of Ms. Harvey will have on the film or whether the film will acknowledge her passing. An autopsy was scheduled for today, Wednesday, but a cause of death wasn't expected to be released until blood tests were returned.
