Originally, Shepard wrote the character of Sky as part Native American, but because of Wenders desire to cast Sarah Polley, that aspect of the character was set aside. Both agreed that her being Native American was not essential to the character, and Wenders had wanted to work with Polley because he'd been so impressed with her acting in past projects.

At one point, Howard's mother asks if Howard ('Sam Shepard (I)') is trying to runaway like Jesse James (also evidenced by a poster, Howard played Jesse in a movie within the movie). Shepard would play Jesse's brother in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007).
