Trivia

Leonardo DiCaprio was considered for the lead role, but decided to produce this film instead.
Ben Affleck delayed his own directorial production of this project to take the lead role in David Fincher's adaption of Gone Girl (2014). According to Affleck, he always wanted to get a chance to work with David Fincher on a film.
Cinematographer Robert Richardson wanted to shoot the film with the Ultra Panavision 70 anamorphic lenses he had recently used on The Hateful Eight (2015), but Panavision had already rented them for use on Rogue One (2016).
Ben Affleck's second time directing an adaptation of a Dennis Lehane novel. His first being Gone Baby Gone (2007).
Ben Affleck's fourth time directing a movie.
Lehane was initially fearful of Ben Affleck's ability to play the lead role of Joe Coughlin, considering an actor of Affleck's presence would struggle to access the underlying perfidy and pudency that both plagued and spurned Coughlin. To his credit, Affleck was humble enough to screen test, and (apparently) more than allayed any fears.
Jennifer Lawrence and Lindsay Lohan were considered for the lead roles.
Titus Welliver has appeared in all 4 of the movies Ben Affleck has directed.
This will be the second time Chris Cooper has worked on a movie with Ben Affleck as director and actor. The first time was in The Town (2010).
Adam Driver, Chris Messina and Jon Bernthal are being considered for roles in the film.
