Ghosts Of Mars (Natasha Henstridge, Ice Cube, Pam Grier) 2001

Shot entirely at night. Much of the location shooting was done in a gypsum mine near Albuquerque, New Mexico. The gypsum, which is almost pure white, was sprayed with a red food dye to give the look of a Martian landscape.
Production had to be shut down for a week when Henstridge fell ill due to extreme exhaustion.
Ghosts Of Mars received mostly negative reviews.
Jason Statham was originally hired to play James "Desolation" Williams, but was replaced by Ice Cube for star power ?
Originally called Escape from Earth, a supposed sequel to Escape from L.A. (1996) that features Kurt Russell as Snake before changing its script due to box office failure.
