Sylvester Stallone was originally slated to play the role of Jimmy Dolan. He was later replaced with Christian Slater. Kevin Bacon was originally going to be Robinson and Stacy Title was going to direct. Bacon was also offered the lead in another movie based on a Stephen King novel with Christine, a story also centered around a car. See more »
The highway where "Dolan" is "buried", according to the film (shown on a sign and on the work order) is US Highway 71.
US 71 is nowhere near Las Vegas or Los Angeles. It runs from Southern La. to Northern Mn. See more »
In his experimental law of impacts, Sir Isaac Newton describes something called the arc of descent. It's all about kinetics, mass, velocity, the inertia of falling persons and things. Once a descending object acquires a certain momentum, it continues on a downward parabolic curve to eventually impact with an immovable object at the nadir, the bottom, thereby consummating the arc of descent.

Simply tale made somewhat confusing due to poor delivery
Having read the short story by Stephen King before viewing this film, i can clearly confirm that for anyone who is hoping for a faithful adaption, you may find yourself in two half's.
The film itself is average. The pacing at the start is spot on and the story should be intriguing enough for you wanting more. This said, I watched this film with a companion and unlike me, he hasn't read the story. I'm not going to moan about how the film isn't better than the book cause it's never is but what i will say is that my friend must of got confused during the final parts.
The main character, Robinson, takes up a job on the highways to get a grip of the machinery which he'll be using to execute his plan. This also involves him creating a illusionary canvas and setting up a false detour. I know all this because i've read the book, however, the film does such a awful job showing the characters emotions and there purposes that i'll warn you not to get upset when you find yourself lost.
Long story short, film is a mess. Bently at times was laughable, Slater had no swagger and Robinson's Partner was idiotic. I dunno, i loved the story but even if had never read it before setting eyes on the film, it wouldn't of made much difference.
