Star-Derailing Role: Jason Patric's career as a leading man was effectively ended by this film, with all his subsequent roles either being supporting ones, on TV or in low-budget films. Sandra Bullock was also sent into a brief career slump, but was able to pull herself out of it a few years later with Miss Congeniality.
A sequel for Keanu Reeves to reprise Jack Traven, naturally. The film had been written with the expectation he would return, until forced to substitute him with Jason Patric after Reeves declined to return. Ironically, given what it did for co-star Sandra Bullock and Patric, most agreed that Reeves probably dodged a bullet.
