Known Trivia

  • David Fincher was originally attached to direct, but was dropped from the film by Sony after his demands – a $10,000,000 salary and full creative control of the project – could not be met by the studio. Fincher wanted Christian Bale to play the lead role. After his departure, Danny Boyle signed on to direct and Leonardo DiCaprio was approached about the title role. Ultimately, however, DiCaprio passed on the project and Christian Bale was offered it instead. However, Bale also declined the role, feeling he was not right for the part after which Michael Fassbender entered to star in the film. 219 of 227 found this interesting Interesting? Yes No |
