When this movie initially failed to generate a studio green light around the early 1990s, screenwriter Tony Gilroy put the screenplay aside and moved on. Cut to 2003, when Radar Pictures producer Mike Weber came across the script. "It's one of the first things I read when I started at Radar," Weber recalled.

The project graduated from a Post-it note to a commercially viable project after 'Argo' came out in 2012.
