This was the first Steven Seagal film released direct to video (although it did receive a theatrical release in some countries). After Half Past Dead (2002), all of his subsequent movies were released straight to video, although that trend was broken with Machete (2010).

Paul Mones and David Ayer both produced drafts of the screenplay, but neither were credited on the final film. It is believed the writers who are credited are pseudonyms.

This was the first film that the financing had been solely raised by Seagal/Nasso Productions after they split from Seagal's regular studio Warner Bros. Seagal/Nasso had gained funding for a handful of pics, most of which were to star Seagal, but the deal fell through when the relationship between Seagal and producing partner Julius Nasso collapsed. Other projects that were lined up for Seagal included 'Blood on the Moon" , where he was to play a man hunting the modern-day pirates who murdered his family, and "Black Top" where he was to play a high-end car thief.
