Australian Screenwriter Stuart Beattie was only seventeen when he took a cab home from the Sydney airport. It was on that ride that he had the idea of a homicidal maniac sitting in the back of a cab, with the driver nonchalantly entering into conversation with him, trusting his passenger implicitly. Beattie drafted his idea into a two-page treatment. Later, when he was enrolled at Oregon State University, he fleshed it out into his first screenplay. Titled "The Last Domino", he put the script away, taking it out occasionally for revisions and re-writes over the following years.

When Max and Vincent are driving to Club Fever, a coyote crosses the road in front of them. The native American Navajos have an omen that can also be considered as a taboo. They say that if a coyote crosses your path, turn back and do not continue your journey. If you keep traveling, something terrible will happen to you. You will be in an accident, hurt, or killed.

This movie sat on DreamWorks development books for three years. Mimi Leder was initially attached to direct until it passed on to Janusz Kaminski. It wasn't until Russell Crowe became interested in playing Vincent, the hitman, that the project started generating any heat. Crowe brought Michael Mann on board, but the constant delays pushed Crowe off the project. Mann immediately went to Tom Cruise with the idea of him playing the hitman and Adam Sandler as the cabbie.

In an interview in American Cinematographer, Michael Mann said that as far as he was aware, this was one of the first movies to attempt to make a "look" out of digital video, rather than trying to make digital video look like film. This approach meant the movie could be shot in the low-light scenes of urban desolation Mann wanted, because digital reacts much better to low light than film. The approximately twenty percent of the picture that was shot on film was mostly ( according to Mann) the portion set in the "Fever" nightclub, because this is the scene with the brightest lighting, in which digital video does not perform as well.

Stuart Beattie was waiting tables when he ran into friend Julie Richardson, whom he'd met in a U.C.L.A. Screenwriting Extension course. Richardson had become a producer on the lookout for good thriller scripts in particular. Beattie pitched her his screenplay "The Last Domino", and she liked it. Her boss, Frank Darabont, also liked it, and set up a meeting with HBO. They passed on the project after Beattie submitted another draft. He then begged his agent to set up a meeting at DreamWorks, where Executive Marc Haines read the script over a weekend. The studio bought the screenplay the following week.

Although Max refers to himself as "collateral" in the scene where he briefly stands up to Vincent after the hitman kills the jazz club owner, that's not where the movie got its title. The original script had Vincent's professional name as "Vincent Collateral", and there is a deleted scene that confirms this. The title was considered for a change after the unsuccessful release of the Arnold Schwarzenegger action film Collateral Damage (2002), but everyone agreed that they shouldn't avoid a title everyone liked, just because it echoed a movie that no one cared about.

Contrary to Michael Mann's interview with American Cinematographer, Paul Cameron, with whom he worked for the first three weeks of photography, claimed that the digital cameras used lacked the ergonomics, color bandwidth and the standard camera lens support. These interviews and claims were brought to the attention of Panavision U.S.A., who subsequently developed the Genesis camera system based on that feedback, and its usage was pioneered in Superman Returns (2006).

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

If you look closely, you can see how Vincent, a trained killer, was unable to shoot Max, a normal cab driver. Max was firing wildly, but Vincent was using his signature precision shooting of two hits to the chest and one in the head. These shots hit the metal barrier in the middle of the door, and hence missed Max. You can see the bullet indentations in a few of the scenes. Max just got lucky with his random firing.

Vincent didn't use a silenced USP Tactical or MK .23 caliber SOCOM as was previously suggested. The silenced pistol was a .22 caliber long-rifle Ruger MK II handgun, with the upper receiver and barrel replaced with a custom integral silencer.
