Imagine the greatest conversation you've ever had
Screenwriter Donald Margulies was one of director James Ponsoldt's playwriting teachers in college

David Lipsky's book was the main resource used by the screenwriter. Lipsky's tapes, which play a large part in the movie, were only used as a resource for the cast and crew during their research of the characters

The screenplay for this film was featured in the 2013 Blacklist; a list of the "most liked" unmade scripts of the year

According to the director, at least one family member of David Foster Wallace has seen the movie. Out of respect for the privacy of the family he wouldn't say anything more than that the reaction was positive and the person liked the film

Based on the true story of David Lipsky, a Rolling Stone reporter who interviewed author David Foster Wallace for five days in 1996

Despite having lived in Bloomington, Illinois most of his life, the scenes filmed at David Foster Wallace's (Segel) house were all filmed in Michigan

In the scenes filmed at the home of Wallace (Segel) meat had to be placed in the pants of both David Foster Wallace (Segel) and David Lipsky (Eisenberg) in order to have the dogs all over them. In the scenes where the dogs woke up Lipsky (Eisenberg) peanut butter was also placed on his face, again, in order to attract the dogs
