Emily Jenkins: What does she want? Edward Sullivan: To know what your idea of hell is... and make you live there.
Edward Sullivan: They say when you're born you're given your eternal soul. The part of you that lives on, lives again. Whatever evil she is,didn't come from us. It was already there. From the moment she came into being, she brought something with her. Something older, destructive. Soul of a demon.
- Chloe Moretz and Isabelle Fuhrman were considered for the part of Lillith.
While shooting one of the fire scenes for the movie, a special effect fire got out of control and burned the whole set down, including the studio stage it was built into and almost all of the crew's equipment. Nobody was seriously injured and filming resumed the very next day with equipment being hauled in from all over the world.
As Doug (Bradley Cooper) pulls hornets out of his right ear with a cotton swab, Doug is reflected by three mirrors, effectively showing him four times from all angles (and the hornets as well).
With one exception, all the shots with Renée Zellweger being close to and around fire are real (practical effects). The one CG-enhanced shot is the wide angle of her sitting passively on the couch while the room was burning around her. This was shot twice: Once with her and no fire and once with fire and no Renée.
The film was completed in 2007. It took 3 years for it to finally get released in the United States.
