* * TroubledProduction: The film was given a release date with no pre-production work completed (and intended to coincide with the release of the company's public stock offering), and things went downhill from there. The script wasn't ready to shoot on the first day of filming, actors supposedly weren't speaking with each other, verbal sparring between director Roger Spottiswoode and writer Bruce Feirstein persisted and the entire production (from the first day of shooting to its release) took a scant six months.

** Creator/AnthonyHopkins was cast as Elliott Carver and joined the production, but walked after three days because it was so chaotic and there was no completed shooting script; due to the pressure on Eon Productions to finish the film on time, new pages of the screenplay were being delivered every morning. He opted to star in ''Film/TheMaskOfZorro instead.
** In the original drafts of the script Stamper was to have suffered a brain injury that caused pleasure to be registered as pain (and vice versa). The idea was dropped, but a version of it made it into the next film ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough, where Renard is unable to feel pain.
** The original script had a reappearance from Valentin Zukovsky from ''FilmGoldenEye. He would appear in the next film ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough''.

* ActorInspiredElement: It was Creator/PierceBrosnan's idea for Paris to be an ex-flame of Bond's.
* AllThereInTheManual: In the novelization, it is revealed that Stamper's hobby is making "snuff porn". He enjoys kidnapping young women and filming them while they're being raped and tortured, and sells the videos on the black market to thrill-seekers. That is why he has a man filming the execution of the naval officers.
** The novelization and the deleted scenes give Elliot Carver's backstory - he is the illegitimate son of media mogul Lord Roverman, whom Carver drove to bankruptcy and blackmails into suicide, later taking over his business.
* CaliforniaDoubling: London doubled for Hamburg, while Thailand doubled for Vietnam.



* CreatorBacklash: Brosnan would go on to admit that while he looks back very fondly on ''Film/{{Goldeneye}}'', he isn't so wild about the following films in his run.

** Creator/MonicaBellucci was nearly cast as Paris Carver, but the role was then given to Teri Hatcher. Considering that a lot people disliked Hatcher's acting in this movie, it was probably in the producers' best interest to keep their original choice. Bellucci would have to wait [[Film/{{Spectre}} 18 years]] before she would have the chance play a Bond Girl.
