Did You Know?


Samppa Batal was about to approach Tommi Korpela, Matti Onnismaa and Carl-Kristian Rundman due the role of Steven, which that time wasn't the name of the character. Batal met with Jonathan Hutchings and while he was told about the plot, Hutchings just assumed he was offered the part. Very soon Batal decided the film to be bilingual and Hutchings got the role. Required changes were made to the script and Hutching even helped with the translation part. See more »
