In a future world devastated by disease, a convict is sent back in time to gather information about the man-made virus that wiped out most of the human population on the planet.
Terry Gilliam's first choice for the lead role was Jeff Bridges, whom he had enjoyed working with on The Fisher King (1991), but the studio wanted a bigger star, so he cast Bruce Willis. Ironically, Willis had originally auditioned for "The Fisher King", but lost out to Bridges.
Jose - psst! Jose, what's going on?
Jose: Bad news, man
James Cole: Volunteers?
Jose: Yeah. And they said your name.
Jose: Hey, maybe they'll give you a pardon, man.
James Cole: Yeah, that's why none of the volunteers come back. They all get a pardon.
When Cole runs after Dr. Peters in the airport, he is not wearing sunglasses before or when he is shot, but when Kathryn kneels down beside him, he is briefly seen wearing a pair of dulled, brown glasses.
The symbol of the 12 Monkeys provides the backdrop for the opening and closing credits.
