Focus Features won the rights to the film in a bidding war against Annapurna Pictures, Netflix and Amazon Studios.

Troye Sivan has also contributed an original song to the movie called "Revelation".

By the time Garrard Conley's memoir was released only a handful of states had banned gay conversion therapy, those being Vermont, California, New Jersey, Illinois and Oregon, along with the District of Columbia.

Garrard Conley turned down the opportunity to write the adaptation himself as he believed a filmmaker would fit to translate his memoir to the big screen.

"Boy Erased" was the first collaboration between longtime friends Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe.

Initially, Viggo Mortensen was considered for the role that went to Russell Crowe.

In September 2018 the film was premiered at Telluride Film Festival.

“Boy Erased” is based on Garrard Conley’s memoir about his experience as a teen in Arkansas.
