- The design of Gort is similar to his original portrayal in The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), but Gort is now a biological form rather than mechanical, as Scott Derrickson considered some extraterrestrial races would develop advanced biological forces instead of technology.
Director Scott Derrickson was an ardent admirer of sci-film director Robert Wise, and had wanted to remake Wise's The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) since 1993.
Jennifer Connelly was Scott Derrickson's first choice for the role of Helen Benson.
According to Keanu Reeves, in The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) Klaatu was an alien WITH a human body, while in this film Klaatu is an alien IN a human body.
Keanu Reeves was producer Erwin Stoff's first and only choice for the role of Klaatu.
