Trivia Written and filmed as "Dusted" by Cannon Pictures, who financed the picture. During post-production, Cannon went bust and MGM, who took over their remaining pictures, renamed the film "Death Warrant". The film was delayed pending a decision over whether Cannon Films or MGM/United Artists) should distribute. However, the old Australian VHS tape came with the Cannon logo at the start and some international trailers credit Cannon as the studio behind the picture. See more »
