- Recycled Script: The basic plot is basically The Firm, with Satan.
- What Could Have Been:
- Joel Schumacher was originally set to direct the film in 1994 with Brad Pitt to star as Kevin Lomax. Christian Slater, John Cusack and Edward Norton were then considered for the role.
- Originally the film was a more special-effects oriented, blockbuster-type movie and was turned down by Al Pacino five times. But when Taylor Hackford went through a few script re-writes he offered it to Pacino again. Pacino liked it, but didn't think he could portray Milton properly, and suggested Sean Connery or Robert Redford instead. Richard Gere and Kevin Spacey were also considered.
