Shortly after completing production, the “Sixth Sense” filmmaker took to Twitter to share his experience of filming in the Dominican Republic:
Wrapped production on @oldthemovie It was an incredible experience. Beyond grateful to the people of the Dominican Republic who were so caring & welcoming. It is one of the most beautiful countries filled with the sweetest people. Thinking of you as I head back to Philly. pic.twitter.com/56fxKcNb4E— M.
