DREAMCATCHER star Thomas Jane is warning Hollywood's big names not to shoot movies in South Africa, after being caught up in a series of shooting dramas on the set of new film Stander.

The actor husband of Patricia Arquette has been filming the action movie with Deborah Unger and Dexter Fletcher in Johannesburg, and he admits the tensions on the set were hell.

He says, "It was a very tough place, like making a movie in the Wild West. Our camera operator shot and killed a man on our second day of shooting.

"Our grip truck driver got shot in the jaw on his way to work one day. It was a very tough town and we made a terrific action drama out of it."
