The conclusion of the film's final chase scene was neither scripted nor budgeted.

Anthony Hopkins has purchased an L.A.-area home for about $3.8 million. The Oscar-winning actor, who was born in Wales and knighted by the queen of England in 1993, became a U.S. citizen last year at age 62. He bought a Cape Cod-style home, built in the 1950s on a bluff overlooking the ocean.
