Nicolas Cage has vowed to work with more foreign actors - because he is "fascinated" with filming outside of his native U.S.
Cage shot forthcoming film Bangkok Dangerous entirely in Thailand with Chinese directors Oxide Pang Chun and Danny Pang, who hired an all-Thai crew.
And the actor insists the experience has inspired him to develop a more "international mind".
He says, "(It's an) all Asian (cast). I'm probably the only white guy in the movie. For me, that's always interesting - when you see different cultures, different races interacting.
"There's always going to be an undeniable dramatic tension there. And that's fascinating to watch. You want to see people getting along in cultures. And you want to see how it's going to turn out.
"It's refreshing to work with people from all around the world who are so talented, and introducing them to the United States as well."
