Christina Ricci was originally considered for the role of Valerie, and was a strong candidate before Amanda Seyfried was selected. It was decided that she was too old for the role and was several years older than both love interests, Shiloh Fernandez and Max Irons.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

With the exception of Valerie (Amanda Seyfried), all the characters from Daggerhorn are either played by actors with brown eyes or wearing brown contact lenses. Most notable of the latter is Julie Christie, who plays Valerie's Grandmother, who is famous for her blue eyes. This was to add to the suspense and mystery on who could be the werewolf in hiding, as Valerie saw the werewolf had brown eyes in her encounter with it.
You can see Cesaire (Billy Burke), wearing a sheep mask. As from the famous quote; wolf in sheep's clothing.
Billy Burke played a human in The Twilight Saga where there are werewolves in the story but in this film he plays a werewolf.
