While Jackie Brown was in production, Universal Studios was preparing to begin production on Out of Sight, directed by Steven Soderbergh, an adaptation of a Leonard novel that also featured the character of Ray Nicolette, and waited to see who  QuentinTarantino would cast as Nicolette for Jackie Brown. Michael Keaton hesitated to take the part of Ray Nicolette, as he did not feel he could play the part correctly, even though Tarantino and Roger Avary wanted him to play the part. Keaton subsequently agreed to play Nicolette again in Out of Sight. Although the legal rights to the character were held by Miramax and Tarantino, as Jackie Brown had been produced first, Tarantino insisted that the studio not charge Universal for using the character in Out of Sight, allowing the character’s appearance without Miramax receiving financial compensation.
