Daniel Baldwin's first feature as director, The Fall, which stars Joe Mantegna, Michael Madsen and Baldwin himself, has been troubled by bounced cheques from the Canadian production company. Many crew members found their cheques were worthless and Baldwin says even he has yet to receive his full fee.

He told The Hollywood Reporter, "These people are due their money and should be paid," and that the production company, "say, 'We're waiting for the bank closing. We're waiting for hell to freeze over.'" The film's producer, John Gillespie, has promised to rectify the situation. Baldwin should be thankful that the financial problems didn't come to light until after shooting finished. In 1996 a high-profile project, Divine Rapture starring Johnny Depp and Marlon Brando, had to abandon filming in Ireland after only two weeks when its funding fell through.
