An Encore For Brett Ratner And Steve Wynn.

Casino mogul Steve Wynn has obtained the services of Director Brett Ratner in the filming of his new commercial for "Encore", his new casino which will be opening soon.  Ratner filmed the ad for "Wynn Las Vegas", with owner Wynn standing at the very top of the casino (Watch the video to see the original ad).  The new commercial is supposed to be similar to this one with Wynn strapped by a safety harness to the top of the huge building.

According to Norm Clarke of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the chopper will be flown by the same pilot who shot many of the most dangerous scenes in "Cliffhanger," a 1993 thriller starring Sylvester Stallone and John Lithgow.

In the same article, Brett Ratner was quoted as saying, "I've done the 'Rush Hour' films.  Jackie Chan is the most fearless actor I've ever worked with. Steve Wynn is the most fearless casino operator I've worked with."

Being one who hates heights like that, I can tell you that he is definitely more fearless than me.

An insider told me that during the filming of the first commercial, there were two men in a trap door ready to stop him if he started to slip.
