Trivia: Collateral Damage

  • Deleted Role: Sofia Vergara as a plane hijacker, as her scenes were too uncomfortable post-9/11.
  • Fake Nationality:
    • Once again, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays an American, though a Germanic background is implied.
    • New Zealander Cliff Curtis (and of Maori extraction to boot) as Colombian terrorist El Lobo.
    • Italian Francesca Neri as Colombian Selena Perrini.
    • Canadian Elias Koteas as American Agent Peter Brandt.
    • American John Turturro as Canadian Sean Armstrong.
  • Too Soon:
    • 2001 release? Bad year for a terrorism-themed movie.
    • A scene depicting a plane hijacking (by Sofia Vergara!) was cut from the film.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Lots of stuff was cut due to 9/11.
    • The script had Libya as its setting.
