Trivia
Because Bruce Willis refused to re-record several lines of dialog (ADR) when the movie was being restructured, a sound-alike voice-over actor had to be brought in.

During the opening montage showing the development of the surrogates, there is a shot of an Asian man with an android twin. This is actually footage of Dr. Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University and his creation - Geminoid, a prototype android double of himself.

When Tom Greer is talking to Lionel Canter's young man surrogate in the back of the limo, the surrogate's hair changes dramatically within seconds. Tom Greer looks away for a second and when he looks back the surrogate's hair changes from in place and shorter to longer, shaggy and in his eyes.

In the elevator going to see Dr. Canter, Greer is standing next to the bodyguard and glances over to see a gun under the bodyguard's jacket. In the following shot, no one has moved and as they begin to exit the elevator, Greer is now behind the bodyguard and would not have been able to see the gun from there.

Q
A Note Regarding Spoilers
A
The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.
Q
Is "Surrogates" based on a book?
A
Surrogates based on a five-issue comic book series, The Surrogates (2005-2006), written by Robert Venditti and drawn by Brett Weldele. In 2009, it was followed by a prequel graphic novel, The Surrogates: Flesh and Bone. The comics were adapted for the movie by American screenwriters John Brancato and Michael Ferris.
Q
Why was crime reduced so much?
A
Since 98% of the population could afford surrogates, it meant they had enough money to not be tempted my material crimes (burglary, theft etc.). Given that surrogates were essentially equally hard to destroy, there were no weaker groups bullied by stronger groups, so violent crime decreased. As for taking out one's rage on a surrogate's human operator, it is shown that the police could inspect the logged visual perception of surrogates, so criminals would be caught easily after the fact. Tom Greer's (Bruce Willis) anxiety, once he's in the flesh among a world of surrogates, says that humans would most likely avoid going out in the flesh or having their surrogate confiscated - a likely punishment measure for crime.
