I was away for around 4 1/2 months. We were in the Sahara Desert in Tunisia and were shooting at this beautiful film studio, which sadly doesn’t exist anymore. If you think of old-fashioned Hollywood and the kind of films I grew up watching, it was closer to that experience than any of the other films I had done up until that point. As mentioned, the other films were pretty much shot on the street, they weren’t fantas
