** GaryBusey would reprise his role as a LA-based federal agent in ''PointBreak'' the following year.

* TroubledProduction: In particular the scene where Harrigan meets King Willy. The alley the scene was filmed in was in a rough neighborhood, with disgruntled residents throwing ''feces'' at the filmmakers due to the noise they were making. They even discovered an actual dead body in the very real garbage you see in the scene.

* DeletedRole: Elpidia Carrillo, who played Anna in the first film, has her name listed in the sequel's credits, yet doesn't seem to appear in the actual film. Look carefully during the scene inside Peter Keyes' mobile headquarters, and you will spot her. When Keyes describes how the creature activated a self-destruct device in the first film, you can briefly spot Anna on one of the video screens. Carrillo filmed a debriefing scene, in which she talks to the camera and describes the events of the first film, but it was cut from the sequel.
* DeletedScene: Deleted material included explicitly stating that Leona is lesbian and a few months earlier her and Harrigan got drunk at a party and ended up sleeping together. This leads to the very clear implication that she's pregnant with Harrigan's child, and helps explain why he seems so freaked out when he learns she is pregnant.

** At one point, Creator/PatrickSwayze was approached to star in the film, but was unable because he was injured during the filming of ''Film/RoadHouse''.
** Stephen Hopkins wanted Creator/JohnLithgow for Keyes, but Joel Silver insisted on Creator/GaryBusey.

and helps explain the C.I.A. had been setting up C.I.A. commissioned missions in the jungles on the Predator, which Dutch had been involved in, after the events of the first film, but they had lost Dutch. Which explains why he seems so freaked out when he learns she is pregnant.
Dutch (Schwarzenegger) didn't appear in the sequel.
