The cast and crew traveled to Istanbul, Turkey for a good portion of the film, but some scenes were shot in Affleck's home state. The airport scene actually took place at Ontario International, just outside of Los Angeles.

Affleck, born in Berkeley, now lives in Santa Monica with his wife Jennifer Garner and their children Violet, Samuel and Seraphina.

"I'm a very lucky guy," Affleck told ET in 2009. "I did the right thing. I married the right lady, and we're very happy."
