Creator Killer: Director Jeremiah Chechik's career was electrocuted by this movie being a massive critical and commercial bomb (not screening the movie for critics and trying to justify the move by saying he wanted the press and audience "to experience the movie together" blew up in his face and added to the problems.) He wouldn't direct again for 15 years, and he's still wallowing in the C-list of directors.
Franchise Killer: Gunned down any ideas of adapting a modern-day successor to the classic British spy show.
Missing Trailer Scene: A huge chunk of the storyline was cut out prior to release, including a major opening sequence setting the plot. The trailer features footage from these deleted scenes, such as the fake Emma Peel uttering the code phrase "How now, brown cow?"
Nicole Kidman was the first choice to play Emma Peel, but was too busy with Eyes Wide Shut.
Diana Rigg was asked to play Alice. Upon seeing the script, she refused.
A lengthy subplot was deleted from the final cut involving Emma Peel's brother in law Valentine. He would apparently die in an explosion with Peter in the opening, only to later get revealed as the Big Bad - faking his death and staging the visions to make Emma think she was going mad.
