The Safdie Brothers initially wanted to make this film prior to Good Time
(2017), but couldn't move ahead due problems with financing. During that waiting period, Robert Pattinson
contacted the brothers after he saw the poster of actress Arielle Holmes
covered in pink neon light from their previous film Heaven Knows What
(2014) on the internet. After they met with Pattinson, liking him and being inspired by his enthusiastic energy, the Safdie's spontaneously started to write Good Time with him in mind.
