This film is based on Jon Ronson's 2004 book of the same name.
The character Bill Django played by Jeff Bridges is based on Army Lt. Col. James Channon, who wrote the First Earth Battalion field manual.
The "Evolutionary Tactics" field manual shown in the film is the actual one created by James Channon in 1978 for the U.S. Army.
The character Lyn Cassady played by George Clooney appears to be based partly on the US military's top Remote Viewer Joe McMoneagle, and RV Project Database Manager Lyn Buchanan.
