The Night Crew is an American action thriller film directed by Christian Sesma and co-written by Paul Sloan and Sesma. The film stars Danny Trejo, Luke Goss, Bokeem Woodbine and Chasty Ballesteros.
The Night Crew centers on a group of hard up bounty hunters ( Wade, Ronnie, Rose and Crenshaw) who was paid to rescue a mysterious girl and bring her to America to hide and expose the illegal activities by the most powerful drug dealer. They must survive the night in a desert motel against their well trained gang. They soon realize that their fugitive, a mysterious Chinese woman (Mae), is much more than she lets on.
The filming began on December 2, 2013 for an eighteen days of shooting in Coachella Valley, California with mostly filming in Desert Hot Springs. On January 16, 2014, Deadline reported that the principal photography had begun in Palm Springs after new year holidays.
