When asked how he came up with the names in the film, director Dan Gilroy
states that his love for Charles Dickens's novels inspired him. Gilroy states to Thrillist, "Dickens was a master at using large casts and defining them in incredible ways, and one of the ways he did them was with names. It was slightly elevated, almost hyper-real names. I've always been interested in using names to flesh out a character." He goes on to state, "In this campy, kitschy satire of a world we were creating, I wanted names that were a little over the top. I do collect names. I have files of names. Morf Vandewalt is a name I came along a number of years ago in research." See more
