Trivia

Denzel Washington actually was waterboarded during the filming of some of the torture scene, though only for a few seconds per take.
Safe House is the most financially successful film ever by a Swedish director.
In an early draft of the screenplay, Matt Weston's ability to catch up to Tobin Frost was explained thusly: during his time at the CIA's academy for new agents in training, "The Farm", Frost's file was assigned to Weston as his case study. Weston had memorized Frost's history and used this data to explain to the CIA leaders where Frost would go once he was on the run. The scenes where Weston tracks down Frost in the South African township were kept for the final draft, but altered so Weston used ad hoc research skills to locate his charge.
The movie was originally set in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, but the production decided not to shoot there due to security concerns.
