* ActorInspiredElement: The decision to use Music/StevieWonder's "Superstition" as Del's wake-up music came when director Alex Proyas heard Creator/WillSmith rocking out to it in his trailer.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen
** Creator/HarlanEllison wrote a screenplay in TheSeventies (it's still in print!) which was much closer to Asimov's anthology. Unfortunately, the plot (which looked back on Susan Calvin's life in a manner deliberately similar to ''Film/CitizenKane'') and the FX-heavy scenes (which included a lost city in the Amazon, several alien planets, and a duel in what would later be called {{cyberspace}}) [[ExecutiveMeddling didn't fit the producer's vision and/or budget]], so it was shelved. Oddly enough, some [=DVD=]s of the 2004 film came bundled with a copy.
** VIKI was originally gonna be male, but writers felt it would give away TheReveal as it would remind viewers of [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL]].
** Creator/WillSmith was asked to pen and perform a hip-hop song for the film, as he did for ''Film/MenInBlack'' and ''Film/WildWildWest''. After giving it some thought, Smith decided against it, saying the song "I, Robot" which featured lyrics about the "robots comin' " to take over, would take away the serious edge from the film. If it was actually made, there would have been a scene of Will/Spooner and Sonny having a dance fight.
* WordOfGod: Though it's not in the text proper, screenwriter Akiva Goldsmith theorized on the DVDCommentary that Calvin's absolute faith in robotics comes from having been [[RapeAsBackstory a rape victim]], believing that robots would never be irrational enough to [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil commit such an atrocity]].

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Because it was one of the earliest 3D games made and no home technology at the time was capable of rendering it's polygonal shapes (along with the general poor reception the game received because of said usage of 3D), the game never received any sort of port, even onto computers and hardware that were more than able to run it. Currently, UsefulNotes/{{MAME}} remains the only way to play ''I, Robot'' without having to find an original cabinet.
