When faced with our darkest hour, hope is not a tactic
Inspired by a true story of real life heroes
Kristen Stewart was initially offered the lead role but had to decline due to scheduling conflict

The movie had recieved a standing ovation after its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival

JC Chandor was attached to direct, but dropped out citing creative differences

Mark Wahlberg reportedly stayed in character on set, in between each scene and take

This would be the second collaboration of Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg, earlier they had worked on 'Lone Survivor'

A role was offered to Emma Stone initially but she declined as the script was still being worked on

The actor, Graham McGinnis who potrays the Coast Guard Lieutenant is an active duty Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue Swimmer stationed at USCG Airstation New Orleans in real life

A large number of oilfield workers in the Gulf of Mexico were against making the film because they feel that it dishonors the men who had died during the actual event

An oil rig was built just for this film and is located in Chalmette, Louisiana where the filming mostly took place, and has been coined as the largest set piece ever built

Kate Hudson's posted a photo on Instagram with her step-father Kurt Russell, where she mentioned that 'Deepwater Horizon' will be the first movie they worked together on.

Wahlberg started to contact some of the older actors he knew, like Jack Nicholson for the older lead until the producers wanted Wahlberg to be the older lead and choose a younger lead like Dylan O'brien

The producers of the movie had contacted Mark Wahlberg as they wanted a screen combo of an older and younger male lead together, based on which they keyed in on Dylan O'Brien as the younger lead
Filming Start Date:
27 Apr 2015
