One of two 2012's releases starring 'Mark Wahlberg' as the hero and Giovanni Ribisi as the antagonist, the other film being Ted (2012).
Baltasar Kormákur, director of the film, was the lead actor of the original film, Reykjavík-Rotterdam (2008), playing the same role as Mark Wahlberg.
In a scene at the harbor, Kate Beckinsale is required to say goodbye to Mark Wahlberg, put their kids in the car, and drive away. Only when they came to shoot the scene did the producers learn that Kate doesn't drive.
This is Baltasar Kormákur's first Hollywood movie.
