Brancaster castle rides again?

From page 3 of today’s Times:

“Disney executives should have known that Norfolk, Britain’s flattest county, was not the best place to set a mountain adventure. But the makers of ‘Reign of Fire’ were intent on doing just that for their blockbuster in which fire-breathing dragons take over England.

The film was to feature a plucky band of humans living in a mountain-top castle in Norfolk – highest point 300 feet – surrounded by craggy peaks. Everything was progressing smoothly until the glaring error was pointed out by two Norfolk-born men employed on the set as back-stage mechanics. One of them said ‘I couldn’t believe what I was reading when I saw how the film featured a castle on top of a mountain in Norfolk. I tried to explain that they were making a terrible mistake, but they just shrugged their shoulders and said it was a small detail’.”

Perhaps Guy Rix was ghost-writing the script?
