Johnny Mnemonic: What the fuck is going on? WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON? You know, all my life, I've been careful to stay in my own corner. Looking out for Number One... no complications. Now, suddenly, I'm responsible for the *entire fucking world*, and everybody and his mother is trying to kill me, IF... IF... my head doesn't blow up first. Jane: Maybe it's not just about you any more. Johnny Mnemonic: Listen. You listen to me. You see that city over there? THAT'S where I'm supposed to be. Not down here with the dogs, and the garbage, and the fucking last month's newspapers blowing *back* and *forth*. I've had it with them, I've had it with you, I've had it with ALL THIS - *I want ROOM SERVICE*! I want the club sandwich, I want the cold Mexican beer, I want a $10,000-a-night hooker! I want my shirts laundered... like they do... at the Imperial Hotel... in Tokyo.
Johnny Mnemonic: You can't shoot me. Takahashi: Not in the head.
Johnny Mnemonic: If I fall, you don't get the head, right? If you lose the head, you're fucked!
Johnny Mnemonic: They'll negotiate; they're corporate. Jane: So's the Yakuza.
- Val Kilmer was originally set to star, but left the project after he was offered the role of Batman in Batman Forever (1995).
While the film is based on William Gibson's short story "Johnny Mnemonic", it also draws heavily on his later novel "Virtual Light".
The character Molly Millions, from the original story, was changed to Jane for the film. They are very similar characters except that Molly had retractable razor blades under her fingernails and augmented vision. It is believed that the change was due to the "Molly" character being attached to the rights for any possible future Neuromancer film adaptation.
When Johnny is downloading the data the first time and the yakuza attacks, the anime playing in the background is Makaitoshi Shinjuku (1988) (V).
The script was rumored to have been dumped on the doorstep of Keanu Reeves' house, a tactic that piqued his interest and led to him accepting the role of Johnny.
