The upcoming romantic comedy, "Knight & Day," starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, was not so funny on Sunday when seven bulls escaped and ran wildly for 40 minutes from the film's set in Cadiz, Spain, and thus injuring two women.

The two stars, Cruise and Diaz, were not on the set as they are arranged to arrive next weekend for filming.

The bulls, who are being used in scenes that emulate the famous bull run in Pamplona, were eventually recaptured on a nearby beach.

A spokesperson for the mayor of Cadiz stated in a local newspaper, "Nothing will be filmed in Cadiz until we have a new plan that guarantees the safety of local residents."

Various anti-bullfighting activists have initiated a letter-writing campaign to urge Cruise and Diaz to withdraw from the film.
