Salim: You promised you could protect me
  • When Ed Romley (Brian Caspe) briefs Bob Hunter's CIA team about the kidnapping of Lateef, he states that "the kidnappers used an A300 WinMag (.300 Winchester Magnum) round fired from an AT308-C sniper rifle". However, he instead accompanies this with an on-screen image of the Accuracy International PM (Precision Marksman) rifle, aka the British L96 Arctic Warfare, which is a vastly different looking rifle to the actual AT308. The AT308 is also *not* produced under an exclusive contract with British intelligence services, as Romley states, but rather is sold law enforcement and civilian use worldwide. In the preceding scene with Amjad preparing to go undercover, John Wilson is masquerading as an MI-5 sniper watching Alice brief Amjad on the code phrases. Wilson can be seen carrying this same L96 model of rifle, perhaps as a subtle clue as to his intentions.
  • The producer Georgina Townsley made her debut in feature films with this film, more specialized in the usual documentaries. His society first developed Locked project in 2006 before calling on screenwriter Peter O'Brien to develop this spy thriller located in London and centered around a female character.
  • In order to expand the storyline and its universe of paranoia, cunning, betrayal and reversal of unexpected situations, the authors were inspired by the great classics of espionage, such as The Third Man of Carol Reed or Three Days of the Condor, thriller of Sydney Pollack centered on a plot, but also of more contemporary genre works, like the saga Jason Bourne. In addition to the FBI, a CIA adviser and a former member of the US Navy Commando, Navy SEAL, have been very supportive of the most technical aspects of the scenario and have enabled Peter O'Brien to master the jargon necessary to ensure the authenticity of the film.
  • Noomi Rapace fractured her nose during filming when an elbow accidentally hit her face. She, however, didn't realize the extent of the injury until much later so, after a brief black out, she just got up and insisted on carrying on with the scene. As of April 2015, the fracture had yet to be mended and had healed up in a broken state (meaning it needs to be re-broken up again in order to fix).
