FILM 1653: LORD OF WAR 

TRIVIA: According to Andrew Niccol, the filmmakers worked with actual gunrunners in the making of the film. The tanks lined up for sale were real and belonged to a Czech arms dealer who had to have them back to sell to another country. They used a real stockpile of over 3,000 AK-47s because it was cheaper than getting prop guns.

No US studios would back the film. International finances were secured instead.

Yuri Orlov is a composite of five real arms dealers.

CAMEO: Weston Cage: Nicolas Cage's son is the young Mi-24 Hind helicopter mechanic Vladimir. In the movie, Cage Sr. speaks to the mechanic in Russian: "Son, get off there before you get hurt."
