Known Trivia

  • Jamie Foxx was considered for the role of Coleman Harris.
  • Ashley Greene, Teresa Palmer, Camilla Belle, Aly Michalka, Lily Collins, Emmy Rossum, Amanda Seyfried and Maggie Grace auditioned for the role of Grace Faraday.
  • Bryan Cranston was cast as Max Kennard but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts with his other movie, Argo.
  • Amy Adams and Kate Winslet were considered to play Connie O’Mara.
  • Adam Brody, Joel Edgerton, Luke Evans and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were on the short list for the part of Sgt. Jerry Wooters but Ryan Gosling was cast.
  • The original trailer for this movie was pulled after the Aurora, Colorado Century 13 massacre due to a shot in which four gangsters fire machine guns through a projection screen into a crowded movie theater. Warner Bros. then ordered the film back into production for a reshoot of the scene, necessitating a rescheduling of the film’s release and rewrite of the script.
  • The film was originally slated for an early September, 2012 release date but ended up getting bumped until January of 2013 so some additional scenes could be filmed.
