Third-billed Keanu Reeves gave his verbal agreement to director Joe Charbanic several years before production started, after reading his original script. With his involvement, the filmmakers were able to attract a bigger cast and budget than originally envisioned, and Reeves' part (originally little more than a cameo) was substantially re-written to feature him more prominently. Reportedly, Keanu Reeves, who would be paid scale while his co-stars James Spader and Marisa Tomei would get one million dollar paychecks, tried to drop out of the film, but eventually changed his mind (apparently influenced by the legal precedent of the Kim Basinger/Boxing Helena (1993) debacle). He eventually agreed to do the picture, and abstain from badmouthing it in interviews, on the condition that his involvement in the film be downplayed in all promotional material for the film, including trailers.
Well, damned if you haven't found the worst restaurant in the whole goddamn city.
In the beginning of the movie Joel Campbell is doing a voice over David Allen Griffin's dancing as a flash forward; David Allen Griffin is dancing to the Rob Zombie song "Dragula". At the end of the movie, when the scene occurs it's a different Rob Zombie song. He is now dancing to "How To Make A Monster".
