A major influence on the film was Die Hard (1988) which is director Jorma Taccone's favorite movie. Taccone actually located and used the prop C-4 explosives from that movie for action sequences in this one. In addition, Val Kilmer and Powers Boothe were both told in pre-production meetings with Will Forte and Taccone to act "like you're in a Joel Silver-produced film in 1988." See more »
