* DevelopmentHell[=/=]SavedFromDevelopmentHell: Not nearly as bad as most examples, but it took 6 years for ''Film/LicenceToKill'' to get a follow-up due to legal problems, the longest tenure between two ''Bond'' films to date. In 1994, Timothy Dalton opted to leave the role behind despite Goldeneye partially being written with him in mind, and Creator/PierceBrosnan got the job he could have gotten if he'd been released from his ''Series/RemingtonSteele'' contract in 1987.

* RecycledSoundtrack: The end credits song "The Experience of Love" was originally written by score composer Music/EricSerra for ''Film/TheProfessional''.
* RomanceOnTheSet: It's been reported (and both director Martin Campbell and producer Michael G Wilson allude to it on the [=DVD=] and Bluray commentary track, suggesting that there were a lot of 'secret desires' between the pair) that Creator/PierceBrosnan and Famke Janssen were extremely attracted to each other during production. Nothing ever "happened" as far as anyone knows, bur it sure explains their strong on-screen chemistry. Naturally, however, the British tabloids took this and ran with it, despite Brosnan being in a long-term relationship with Keely Shaye Smith and Janssen actively being married at the time.

** This is where Famke Janssen's filmography started to snowball, with her next major appearance being in Bryan Singer's ''X-Men''. She had however stated a desire to avoid being typecast following Goldeneye, and reportedly received dozens of 'evil villainess' roles following her turn as Xenia; to avoid this, she used her turn in Goldeneye to gain numerous indie roles, including a spot on a Woody Allen film.

** Even after a six-year hiatus between this film and ''Film/LicenceToKill'', Creator/TimothyDalton was initially interested in reprising the role of James Bond for just Goldeneye and not for any further films. Despite their great working relationship and friendship, producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli wanted Dalton to commit to a four to five-film contract, which Dalton was unwilling to do. Not wanting to be contractually obligated to stick around for longer than he was willing to, Dalton announced his resignation from the role in April 1994.

* ProductPlacement: The Eurocopter (now Airbus Helicopters) [=EC665=] Tiger, as well as the latest Aston Martin [=DB5=], and IBM computers. Interestingly enough, the Tiger wouldn't become operationally ready for another 13 years, so at the time it really was a prototype. The BMW Z3 - although not a favourite of Bond fans - was also only a prototype but actively spurred sales of the vehicle despite appearing in two short sequences on film. Perrier also got in on the act with a truck being prominently obliterated during the tank chase.
