- Former Special Air Service (SAS) soldier Mick Gould trained 连姆·尼森 in combatives and weapons handling skills to prepare him for the role.
- 杰夫·布里吉斯 was first cast as Bryan Mills, but after he dropped out of the project 连姆·尼森 accepted the part, desiring to play a more physically demanding role than he was used to. Bridges eventually saw the film, and said Neeson was a much better choice for the role.
- 连姆·尼森 expected the film to bomb, but he signed on in order spend four months in Paris and learn karate, while playing the kind of role he had rarely been offered in the past. Ironically, not only was the film a massive hit, but created a new on-screen image for Neeson as an action hero.
