The production team of 1-800-Love was thrilled when the British authorities gave them permission to shoot some integral scenes for the movie at the renowned Leicester Square in London from May 11th. However, their permission was revoked when Russell Crowe decided to hold a premiere for his movie Robin Hood at Leicester Square as well.
