- Mark Wahlberg joined the film after meeting with Tim Burton for only five minutes. He was so anxious to work with the director that he agreed to play any part. Wahlberg dropped out of the role of Linus in Ocean's Eleven (2001) to do this film. He refused to wear a loincloth like Charlton Heston did in Planet of the Apes (1968) because he did not want to remind audiences of his underwear modeling.
Director Trademark: [Tim Burton] Scarecrows
Director Trademark: [Tim Burton] music (Danny Elfman)
Michael Clarke Duncan had sprained his ankle during filming and was forced to go to the hospital in his full gorilla makeup.
Attar (Michael Clarke Duncan) says to Captain Leo Davidson (Mark Wahlberg), "Take your stinking hands off me, you damn dirty human!" mirroring the original line from George Taylor (Charlton Heston) ("Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!")
