Trivia

Initially planned as a GameFilm interactive movie for the Jaguar (CD). Due to the fact that the Jaguar (CD) had poor sales the release of the game was canceled. About a year later Jeff Burr directed new footage to make a linear version of the movie but the negative cut was totally botched so the producers took an insurance settlement and the film never came out.
