The city of Tangier in Morocco proved to be especially suitable as a stand-in for Beirut because of a quirky chapter in the city's recent history. "Tangier had a building boom ten years ago and it all came from drug money," producer Monica Levinson explained. "When the government figured that out, they immediately put a stop to the construction, so you have a ton of buildings in Tangier that are just half-built shells. The government didn't want squatters to dwell in these buildings so they took sledge hammers and bulldozers and reduced the buildings to rubble. It was incredible to find all of that existing in Tangier." See more
Several of the vehicles are from the wrong era, specifically a Cadillac limousine in the 1972 scenes, and a Jeep Wrangler in the 1982 scenes. See more
