All-Star Cast: Most of the leads were A-listers at the time — Anthony Hopkins was just coming off his The Silence of the Lambs triumph — with notable character actors rounding out the cast. This was effectively Gary Oldman's breakthrough role for mainstream American audiences.
Dyeing for Your Art: Sadie Frost - a brunette - dyed her hair red to play Lucy because producers felt she resembled Winona Ryder too much.
Throw It In: Gary Oldman wanted to say "I never drink... wine" as an homage to Bela Lugosi from the 1931 Dracula film (the line as originally written was nearly verbatim to the novel: "...and I do not sup.")
Trailer Delay: The teaser trailer promised a Summer 1992 release, but it was pushed back a few months to November.
