The film was originally going to be directed by Danny Boyle before he left the project and was replaced by Ami Canaan Mann, daughter of director Michael Mann, who produced the film. Boyle said that the film was “so dark it would never get made”.

Filming began on May 3, 2010, in Louisiana, United States. The film was fist called ‘The Fields’, and was changed when Boyle dropped the production. Bradley Cooper was attached to star alongside Worthington, being later replaced by Morgan.

This marks the second pairing of Jessica Chastain with Sam Worthington in two films released during same summer of 2011 period. It’s the first of three films she works with Jason Clarke as well (they work together in Lawless and Zero Dark Thirty as well).
