Originally set for a US theatrical release in 2004. Then two massive waves of layoffs were sustained at Miramax and Dimension, and the infamous Disney and Miramax split reached it's height. This film thus remained in the Miramax vaults unreleased during this time of uncertainty. When the Disney and Miramax divorce was finally completed, numerous films under the Miramax and Dimension label were finally released theatrically.

Shawn Ashmore and Kelly Hu both had distinctive roles in X2: X-Men United (2003).

Cheech Marin and Kelly Hu previously were in the series, Nash Bridges together but Kelly Hu was only in seasons three and four.

The scene where Trey shoots Murdock and eventually tackles an undercover DEA agent which results in him explaining that Murdock can't be a murder suspect because he was out of town on that date is extremely reminiscent of an exact same scene from Point Break (1991) where Tom Sizemore is the DEA agent.
