The film is based on a short also entitled "The Extra" which was directed by Australian writer-commercial director Darren Ashton and shown at the Melbourne Shorts Film in 2000 where Jimeoin was a judge. The film might have only come in second but Jimeoin made a deal with Ashton to turn the film into a feature starring himself. See more
