Congrats to @mnight and crew for wrapping principle photography #englishstix

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. I brought 40 U.S. crew and about 20 cast from around the world. But most of the crew was Dominican. Thinking of you as I head back to Philly.
