Michael Douglas was originally slated to play the Matthew Modine role, but he dropped out at the last minute, pleading exhaustion -- he had just finished filming "Disclosure." Many top actors were offered the role, including Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford and Keanu Reeves. However, it was difficult finding an actor who was willing to play a supporting role to Geena Davis's character.
The film was originally scheduled to be released on July 21, 1995, but was not ready (filming had only recently been completed).
This film had a budget of $80 million.
During filming, the production company, Carolco, was having serious financial problems -- which very nearly shut down production on the film. On November 10, 1995, a month before the film was released, Carolco filed for bankruptcy.
