As much fun as he had while shooting the movie, the movie also took a sad turn. 

The movie was a bug for everyone, and everyone was giving everything for the film. 

There was a lot of conflict and misunderstandings, but the movie's director, Riley Scott, was fantastic and maintained a calm environment on the set. 

Djimon also expressed that the iconic scene, the last scene in the movie where he was seen digging for his ancestors, was unwritten. 

While shooting for the scene, no one in the production knew why it was being shot, as it was never in the script. 

But everyone trusted Riley and did as he said. 

But the fact was that the death of one of the critical characters in the movie, Oliver Reed, changed everything. 

The movie was tilted as he was no more. Everyone was sad and confused about his death and the film's turn. 

So, the movie was completely changed just on the basis of discussion on the studio.

He said that he felt the illness of being alone so much that the whole movie was a sad experience for him.
