Extensive re-shooting took place after principal photography was completed due to a negative test screening. All the love/intimate scenes between Hardy and Jo were re-shot to make things sexier. Several dialogue scenes, like the scene in the bar between Willis and Sizemore, were also cut to make the film quicker paced. The change in tone of the film also made Columbia change the title from "Three Rivers" to "Striking Distance", as it now focused more on the action/thriller elements. See more »
