Trivia:

Two days before his suicide, Bill Pullman had agreed to star in his new film "'33", which already had studio backing. Set in Istanbul in the '30s, the thriller dealt with a journalist who becomes trapped in the hideout of a heroin kingpin. This was the last script he worked on, together with wife China Kong and Drew Hammond. See more »
