Trivia

Samonte Cruz (Johnny) was hit by a car before the first day of rehearsals and broke his neck. The film crew decided that he was too important to replace and reorganized the production schedule to shoot his scenes after he recovered. Nearly four months later (3 months after principal photography), Samonte was able to move enough to act. His scenes were filmed in a two day stretch. He would apply his neck brace in between takes. Scenes were choreographed to get the most action while maintaining accessibility for Samonte. See more »
