Several scenes in the movie were inspired by actual events. One scene in particular, a suspicious looking truck is pulled over by a Texas Ranger. Once parked on the side of the road, a handful of Mexican immigrants spring from the bed of the truck and flee into the brush. This was something director Will Moore and his crew actually witnessed during re-shoots for Wesley Cash while traveling from one location to the next. See more
