Notes:
In the original script, the game was not going to be played on camera, but as writer-director David Cronenberg got more into it, the game began to become more and more important. EXISTENZ was the first film that Cronenberg wrote and directed since VIDEODROME. Salman Rushdie's battle against the fatwa taken out on his life served as inspiration for Cronenberg when working on EXISTENZ.
