  • Executive Meddling: The first draft of the screenplay was written by Joe Eszterhas, but his name was removed from the project after Figgis rewrote it extensively. Eszterhas said that years later a studio executive told him that the studio allowed Figgis to alter the script because the director had just scored a major success with his film Leaving Las Vegas, while Eszterhas' Showgirls had flopped at the box office. Considering how this filmed fared, fate loves irony it seems.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Adrian Lyne was offered to direct the film, but turned it down in order to helm the remake of Lolita.
    • Nicolas Cage was offered the lead role, but turned it down, as he'd just got married and wasn't interested in adultery.
