  • Focus Features paid $20 million for global distribution rights after a heavy bidding battle in Cannes. This is the highest amount ever paid for a film at a festival.
  • Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal have been cast in another project called ‘Ezekiel Moss’ which would have been directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman. However, the project was scrapped after Hoffman’s death in 2014.
  • Originally, Tom Ford intended to make two films based on Wright’s novel: one which departed from the source’s original story, and another which stuck to it.
  • Based on the book: “Tony and Susan”. The book that Tony writes in the book is called “Nocturnal Animals” (so the writer chose that title).
