"Production consisted of a tight 29-day shoot, and before filming, the cast had only one read-through of Joss Whedon's original script. Kuzui took a free-wheeling, improvisational approach with the actors, leaving many creative decisions up to them. For Paul Reubens' death scene, Kuzui's only advice to Reubens was, "figure it out and die." Actor Donald Sutherland publicly expressed his doubts about the production, while actor Paul Reubens (Pee Wee Herman) recently arrested in Florida on charges of public exposure, brought humor to the tension filled set by making fun of his off-set actions. He dazzled the cast and crew with his perpetual improvisations."
