Trivia
Corey Haim was offered the role of Charlie Fox. His father, who was acting as his manager at the time, turned it down in favour of a starring role in Lucas (1986).

During casting River Phoenix was passed on several times for the role of Charlie Fox for being too old (he was 15). When no age-appropriate Charlie could be found, Phoenix's audition tape was brought in again to director Peter Weir and, impressed by the actor, he decided to put the age issue aside and give Phoenix the job.

Jack Nicholson was considered for Harrison Ford's role.
