Four people who worked on The Shawshank Redemption (1994) worked on this film; Jeffrey DeMunn, William Sadler, and Frank Darabont. DeMunn played the D.A. in the beginning of the film, and Sadler played Heywood. Mack Miles played an orderly here and played Tyrell, the prisoner in The Shawshank Redemption (1994). Both movies are Stephen King adaptions.
