Near the end of the movie, we see Eddie has written a novel called "Illuminating the Dark Fields," a resemblance to the novel "The Dark Fields" by Alan Glynn, which this movie is based on.
Shia LaBeouf was cast as Eddie but had to drop out after badly injuring his left hand in a car accident in July 2008.
Whenever Eddie Morra takes the pill, the movie up-scales in color, then goes down when he is regular Eddie Morra.
Bradley Cooper's father was ill with terminal cancer during the filming of this movie, and Cooper was accordingly relieved that the movie was shot in his hometown of Philadelphia and he could check on his father every day.
The same apartment that Eddie Morra lives in (the introduction scenes, along with the ending scenes) is the same apartment that is seen in the movie Kick-Ass (2010).
Throughout production, the film was called "The Dark Fields," the same name of the book which it is based on.

Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) refers to the fact that his father sold supplies/equipment to dental surgeries, the same job Charlie's father had in the novel Flowers for Algernon, which was surely an inspiration for this film.
