Chris Hemsworth had to lose 25-30lbs of muscle weight to star in this film.

The El Royale is based on the famous Cal Neva Resort and Casino that was once owned by Frank Sinatra.

Goddard's process of selling the spec was under heavy secrecy with the script only going to top studio execs for the potential buyers had to read off a tablet and then return it when done.

Originally Russell Crowe was cast in a role but was later replaced by Jon Hamm.

This film marks the second collaboration between Drew Goddard and Chris Hemsworth.
