According to reports, extras were locked on a subway vehicle for several hours during filming recently-to the point that some started peeing on the tracks.

Sources on set tell TMZ ... extras for the movie were filming a scene in a Brooklyn subway station and they were locked in a train vehicle and denied their break after 2 hours of work ... leading to a sticky situation.

The movie, which stars Joaquin Phoenix, was filming in a Brooklyn subway station.

According to the report, actors resorted to banging on the doors of the subway vehicle, asking to be given their break so that they could use the bathroom, to no avail. Reportedly, some urinated on the tracks through the small spaces between cars because they had no means of going to the bathroom.

The Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists has received a complaint about "a break time violation" on the production and sent a rep to the set to resolve the situation and monitor future interactions on set, if needed.
