Known Trivia

  • Michael Bay delayed making this film multiple times in favor of the Transformers series. He specifically said he wanted to make a small inexpensive film as a change of pace.
  • Albert Brooks was considered for the role of Marc Schiller but a deal couldn’t be reached and John Turturro was cast instead. Turturro dropped out due to scheduling conflicts and Tony Shalhoub was cast.
  • At just over 20 million dollars, the film stands as Michael Bay’s lowest-budgeted film since his feature film debut Bad Boys.
