Trivia: While working on the screenplay for this movie, Neil Gaiman constantly had people misunderstand him, and believe he was writing an episode of "Baywatch". After the script was finished, he actually did adapt "Beowulf" again, setting it in a quasi-futuristic Baywatch-setting. It made its way into his anthology "Smoke and Mirrors", under the title "Bay Wolf".
