Paranoia was originally something Brad Jones wrote for himself to direct several years before this film was produced. When friend Ryan Mitchelle, who has helped Jones out with film projects in the past, was looking for something as his directing debut he asked if Jones had any old scripts he could use. Jones went through his unproduced scripts and found the one for Paranoia. Mitchelle was looking to make something dark and psychological and decided Paranoia was ideal for his debut. While Jones stilled liked the concept of Paranoia and felt it could be a good film, he admitted to not liking the original script he had written, so he basically re-wrote the entire screenplay, keeping only the original concept.
An alternate version known as "The Writer's Cut" appears on the screenwriter/star Brad Jones' website. Notable changes include: The film is now in black and white. Some scenes now include pop songs of the 60's and 80's. All foreshadowing hinting at the movie's conclusion has been removed. Many of Jerrid Foiles' lines were cut. Also removed are any time a character uses the word "paranoia." Many lines have been cut from the final church scene. Some sound effects were also fixed, namely a more appropriate glass shattering sound near the beginning of the film.
