Matt Dillon worked his crew so hard on the set of his directorial debut
CITY OF GHOSTS - many ended up exhausted in hospital.
The movie hunk made the film on such a tight budget that he often had to
ask crew members to put in extra time shooting street scenes in Cambodia to
capture the essence of the country.
But his workaholic schedules almost cost him his team.
He says, "Shooting the film was difficult. We had a finite amount of money
to work with and a difficult schedule. Of course, I did care about the crew. I
care very much about them and appreciated their effort.
"You don't want to burn out the crew but we didn't any other option. We
were up against it and people passed out from heat exhaustion. Some had to go
to the hospital for IV drips."
