** Creator/JohnCarpenter and Creator/BrianDePalma were offered the chance to direct but both backed out because they feared that the story was too similar to ''Film/PlayMistyForMe''. De Palma also felt that Michael Douglas was not a good leading man, but has since admitted he was wrong about Douglas. Carpenter also turned it down because he felt the audience would not accept the originally scripted, downbeat ending. Creator/JohnBoorman was also offered the director's job but turned it down to do his personal wartime childhood memoir ''Film/HopeAndGlory''.
