Known Trivia

  • Funded in large part by a campaign on Kickstarter.com.
  • Was submitted to the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and SXSW Film Festival but was rejected by both.
  • Leslie Coutterand was on call throughout the entire filming to replace Lindsay Lohan at a moment’s notice due to Lohan’s repeated absences, tardiness, and feuds with director Paul Schrader and co-star James Deen. Coutterrand was essentially paid to be Lohan’s understudy in case Lohan was fired or left the set and never returned.
  • As described in an in-depth, behind-the-scenes New York Times article about the film’s production, Paul Schrader directed a sex scene naked in an effort to placate Lindsay Lohan.
  • At the table read, Lohan had a script, where in large writing it had Nolan Gerard Funk’s name crossed out with the word “NO!” next to it and other casting suggestions. But by the end of the table read she had changed her mind and at the next rehearsal was thrilled to be working with him.
  • This film will screen this year at the Venice International Film Festival.
  • Jeremy Renner was offered the role of Reed.
  • Sean Paul Lockhart was considered for the role of Ryan.
  • Jason Sudeikis was offered the role of Dr. Campbell.
