Song From the OST


  • The skyline city in the opening scene is not Hong Kong, but Shanghai.
  • FDR calls Tuck about a CHiPs (1977) marathon. Chris Pine’s father, Robert, was a cast member on CHiPs (1977).
  • Making FDR and Tuck believable as CIA agents was tasked to Paul Maurice, a military advisor with extensive wartime experience, who serves as the film’s CIA technical advisor. Maurice worked closely with Pine and Hardy to give them a high proficiency in weapons-handling and hand-to-hand combat.
  • Bradley Cooper was cast but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.
