Murder at 1600 (1997) Poster

Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Wesley Snipes got the role of Regis after Bruce Willis dropped out.
The official trailer for the film contained prominent scenes and dialogue that were removed before it was released in theaters. Among these excised items: Wesley Snipes' detective arrives at the White House via a helicopter at night; he then says the crime occurred "at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue--an address that changes all the rules"; and Daniel Benzali's Secret Service Director tells Snipes "You were born to become a chalk outline". The former scenes were cut when the filmmakers decided they were too over-the-top (not to mention, in the helicopter-arrival case, something that would never be remotely possible in real life). The scene between Snipes and Benzali was removed because it wrongly made Benzali look like an evil character and a major villain, when the film's storyline makes it clear he is an honest agent who is opposed to Snipes' presence because he feels it undercuts the Secret Service's job of solving the murder mystery.
