Maria Mesa, Jackson’s The Dead Men co-star, has posted some new behind the scenes images from the film via her official facebook page. I’ve added the ones featuring Jackson to the gallery.
She also recently talked to Celebrity Teen Scoop about what it was like working with Diego and Jackson.
CTS: What was it like working with Jackson and Diego?
Maria: Jackson and Diego were a big inspiration for me. I never thought I’d be working with actors of their caliber in such a short time so I was a little anxious. But getting to know them and being around them every day while doing the movie made me more confident. They are so talented and such nice people. I learned a million things about them, as actors and as people.
Every time there was tension on set or something went wrong, Jackson would surprise us all with a joke or with a weird movement. Even when shooting, he would finish the scene or his line with something random and, believe it or not, it would work in the scene. It always made us all laugh. Sometimes, before or after filming, the crew would get together and start singing songs. Jackson, who is also a talented musician, would play his guitar and the rest of us would sing along. There was always a time or a moment to play, enjoy and have a great time on set.
CTS: What did the three of you do for fun during down time or on days off in Colombia?
Maria: In our free time we would go out to restaurants, spend time with the crew away from set, or just go around the city. Medellin is a beautiful area with enjoyable places.

Diego Boneta, who starred opposite Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages, and Jackson Rathbone of Twilight Saga fame have signed on to star in the thriller The Dead Men.
Dead Men is the debut feature of Kirk Sullivan, who recently left his job as Joel Silver’s assistant to pursue his dream of being a director. Production began this week in Columbia.
Brad Furman is producing with Contento Films while Aaron Ginsberg exec produces.
The script, by Andrew Poston, centers on an American running from his past who is brought into a group of young underground radicals called The Dead Men, only to discover a centuries-old spiritual battle.
Boneta, who hails from Mexico, did stints on Pretty Little Liars and 90210 before landing the plum starring role of the aspiring musician in the big-screen version of the hit musical Rock of Ages. The actor, who is repped by Gersh and Hansen Jacobson, also starred in MTV’s Underemployed.
Rathbone played vampire Jasper Hale in the Twilight movies and also starred in the McG-produced digital short series Aim High. He is repped by Paradigm and Cutler Management.
Looks like Jackson is working on a new film! In his latest tweet, he mentions heading down to Medellin, Colombia to film The Dead Men (which is also stars Diego Boneta). Here’s a few details about the film:
