Trivia The Sisters Brothers

Filmed in France, Spain, and Romania. Despite the film's American setting, none of the scenes were shot in the United States. The film was shot in Tabernas in Almeria, Spain. Because of its similarities to North American deserts, it previously served as filming location for a large number of Western films and series. Additional scenes were shot in Spain's northern provinces of Navarre and Aragon. This film features the pairing of Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly. Phoenix starred as singer Johnny Cash in 'Walk the line' (2005), while Reilly starred as Dewey Cox, a character based on Johnny Cash, in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007).
