Trivia

4 actors in this film have appeared with Bruce Willis in different films. Tom Hanks (Paul Edgecomb) appeared in The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990). David Morse (Brutus Howell) appeared in Twelve Monkeys and 16 Blocks (2006). William Sadler (Klaus Detterick) appeared in Die Hard 2 (1990), and Michael Clarke Duncan (John Coffey) appeared in Breakfast of Champions (1999), Sin City (2005), Armageddon (1998), and The Whole Nine Yards (2000).


Quotes

Old Paul Edgecomb: I guess sometimes the past just catches up with you, whether you want it to or not.


Goofs

(at around 2h 25 mins) After John Coffey finishes putting the tumor into Percy, Percy drops his baton onto the floor and no one picks it up. When he's walking toward Wild Bill's cell, the baton is hanging from a string wrapped around Percy's wrist.


Crazy Credits

There are no opening credits after the title has been shown, followed by the opening scene for place of film. Although it is now commonplace for films to not have opening credits, in 1999 it was somewhat rather unusual and it was considered for a trademark of director Frank Darabont.


Alternate Versions

The documentary "Walking the Mile" (which is included on the DVD) features the making of a scene, where Edgecomb and his wife are in a church. That scene is not in the final film. The church is probably the one mentioned by Hanks character when he says to Melinda that "we missed you in church".
