Righteous Kill (2008) Poster

Trivia

In the first movie where Al Pacino and Robert De Niro starred together, The Godfather: Part II (1974), they both played gangsters. In their second movie Heat (1995), Pacino was a cop, and DeNiro was a gangster. In this, their third movie together, they are both cops. This is also the first movie where they have extended interaction. They never shared a scene in The Godfather: Part II (1974) and in Heat (1995) they only had two scenes.
Carla Gugino played the sex partner of Robert De Niro in this movie. 15 years earlier, she played his daughter in This Boy's Life (1993)
The initial cut of Righteous Kill ran for two hours, but after a rather negative test screening, Nu Image hastily re-cut the film down to its slender 101 minutes to make it more fast-paced and action-orientated. Snippets of some of the deleted scenes can be seen in the trailer.
Overture Films paid a little over $12 million US dollars for the American distribution rights, beating out Warner Bros. Pictures and Universal Pictures, who also put in bids of over $10 million.
