Trivia

Stephen King sold the movie rights for $1.
Thomas Jane did the film because his mother, a big Stephen King fan, told him to.
Stephen King wrote the novel while recovering from a near-fatal accident. Because of his injuries, he wrote the novel in longhand. The accident is reflected in the story, particularly a graphic scene in which a vehicle runs down a major character.
The main characters hail from Derry, Maine, a fictional small town that neighbors Castle Rock, the setting of many other Stephen King stories. Derry was also the setting for It (1990).
The third film William Goldman has adapted from a Stephen King novel; the other 2 were Hearts in Atlantis (2001) and Misery (1990).
To portray Mr. Grey speaking through Jonesy, Damian Lewis did an impression of actor Malcolm McDowell.
When Mr. Grey talks to Jones, the poem he alludes to is Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening".
An early deleted scene showed the boys with Josie, the girl with intellectual disabilities who they later rescue from the sewer drain.
The insignia on Gen. Matheson's beret is actually a 10th Mountain Div. shoulder patch, without the "MOUNTAIN" tab.
The character of Col. Kurtz in the novel was changed to Col. Curtis for the movie so the audience wouldn't think it was a reference to the Apocalypse Now (1979) character, which it is in the novel.
