Co-writer Jeremy Pikser described the experience of working with Warren Beatty as frustrating. He was paid by the studio a lump sum per each draft produced and Beatty spent months working and reworking a single draft. Tired of being away from his family, Beatty's ego and the lack of pay, Pikser left the L.A. office where he and Beatty were writing the script to return to his family in L.A. The two finished the rest of the process via telephone and fax.
