*** [[spoiler: She gets killed in the novel.]]

to:

** Irene was written as a Hispanic character (in character, as in the source novel, her novel. Her name was "Irina").
***
changed from "Irina" to "Irine" when Creator/CareyMulligan was cast in the role.
** Early drafts of the script had a significantly different second half. Among other changes,
[[spoiler: She gets Irine is killed by a hitman attempting to kill Driver (similarly to her fate in the novel.novel), Driver's rage issues being explored further in a scene where he attacks a stuntman, Shannon surviving the events of the film, and the ending having Driver break into Nino's beach house and killing him along with his bodyguards.]]




to:

** The script originally had much more dialogue, particularly in the interactions between Driver and Irine, but both Creator/RyanGosling and Creator/CareyMulligan felt that their scenes worked better with minimal dialogue to focus on the mood, and Refn agreed. Refn also continually cut dialogue from the script during pre-production and filming.
** It was reported from early test screenings that the ending had Driver [[spoiler:dying from his stab wound.]]

** The infamous head-stomping scene was originally ''far'' more graphic. Refn had even consulted with Creator/GasparNoe over how to make it look as realistic as possible, as he had directed a similarly graphic scene in ''Film/Irreversible''. In the end, the scene had to be cut down significantly due to complaints by ratings boards.

* HeyItsThatPlace: The diner that Irene works at is a pretty common shooting location. It's recognizable by the view of the elevated freeway in the background.

** Nicholas Winding Refn almost didn't get the job, and the film may possibly not have happened. Ryan Gosling and Refn have both talked about their terrible initial meeting. Refn was sick and delirious which Gosling interpreted it as him not being interested so he cut it short. During the car ride home ReoSpeedWagon came on the radio and Refn started singing along and bawling, then turned to Gosling and said "The movie is about a guy who drives around LA at night listening to pop songs". If that song hadn't come on the radio, the movie might not have happened.
