Sometimes folks just have to go there with a knife, but one of the stars of "Lakeview Terrace" was stripped of her weapon of choice.



According to WENN, producers cut a scene involving Kerry Washington going after Samuel L. Jackson with a knife because  it occurred to them that at least one of the stars should keep it together. The film, which opens wide on Sept. 19, features Jackson as a psycho cop stalking the mixed-race couple that moved next door.

"The producers felt like, at that point in the film, my character was the only sane one and they needed her to stay sane in the mix," Washington said. "She was losing it. But it was fun to shoot, to hold a knife up to Sam."

September will be a busy month for Washington. She's also in Spike Lee's "Miracle at St. Anna," which opens on Sept. 26.
