* ViralMarketing: The film's producers ran a multi-week game where the player, being a rookie agent, is given the choice to assist Salt or turn her over to the government. If the player turned her over, the game ended. If the player helped her, [[spoiler: she used the player to assist her in eliminating other, deep-cover agents]]. After the last episode, she then [[spoiler: had the player trapped in an abandoned warehouse and then called the player's superior officer, who came and picked up the agent, presumably for arrest and punishment.]] The premise of the game was [[spoiler: the rookie agent unwittingly helped her (a Russian deep-cover mole) while thinking she was actually being framed for the crime.]]

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** The movie was originally written with Salt as a male (Edwin A. Salt), and Creator/TomCruise was approached to play him. Ultimately, he backed out and the script was rewritten with a female lead.
** Terry George, Creator/MichaelMann and Peter Berg all came close to directing at one point or another.


* FakeRussian: DeepCoverAgent stuff aside, we have an enforced case with Orlov. Andrei Konchalovsky told director Philip Noyce that such an evil Russian character could only be played by a Polish actor.

* LifeImitatesArt: Just as the film was being released, real-life cases of sleeper agents implanted in the US were brought to light with a prisoner exchange between Russia and the US, some of the prisoners being undercover spies. The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illegals_Program plots]] and [[http://theblemish.com/2010/10/anna-chapman-is-in-maxim-russia/: skills]] of the real sleeper agents were less impressive than the ones in the film.
