* StillbornFranchise: A possible sequel has long been in {{development hell}}. In January 2007, it was reported that the sequel would be a loose remake of ''Film/{{Topkapi}}''. Creator/PierceBrosnan said in January 2009 that Creator/PaulVerhoeven was attached to direct. In 2010, Verhoeven said that he had left the project due to script changes and a change in the regime. At one point, both Creator/AngelinaJolie and Creator/CharlizeTheron were rumored for a part, with Brosnan more keen on bringing Theron on board. In April 2013, however, Brosnan cast a doubt on the sequel, calling it "dormant", but claimed he would still like to do it. The initial script was penned by John Rogers from a story he had co-written with Harley Peyton while additional material was provided by Creator/NicholasMeyer, Michael Finch and Karl Gajdusek.
** In the April 2014 edition of ''Empire'', Creator/JohnMcTiernan revealed that he had written a script for the sequel, while in prison, called ''Thomas Crown and the Missing Lioness''.

** Or Disallusion, rather. Creator/PierceBrosnan was under contract as Film/JamesBond with Creator/{{MGM}} during filming. One clause said that he was not allowed to wear a tuxedo in any other movie. That's why his tie and top buttons are undone during the ball, and why he commits a faux pas by wearing a white bow tie to a black tie event.
** When Crown sees Catherine off after they meet at the museum (when he donates the painting), he gives the limo two taps on the hood to signal the driver. This was Brosnan's trademark send-off to Fred, the driver, in ''Series/RemingtonSteele''.
