“We were supposed to have two days to do this scene. But with the vicissitudes of the production, we were asked to shorten by one day. » he says. Before adding:And we had to shoot this scene in one day. This footage was supposed to be cut, but Sam [Raimi] and I held on to it. So we decided to shoot it anyway and we finished it in one day. It was a long day. »
