Max’s play, “Heaven and Hell,” contains several references to Apocalypse Now.
Director Wes Anderson drummed up publicity the old-fashioned way by traveling across the country in a tour bus that was kitted out with two big screen TVs, two VCRs, a CD player, cellphones, a satellite dish and a Sony Playstation. This largely came about because Anderson hates to fly.
Bill Murray genuinely found Ronnie McCawley and Keith McCawley (the two actors playing his sons and who were very much like their screen characters) annoying and many of the scenes where he lashes out at them and insults them were improvised.

On the first day of principal photography, Wes Anderson delivered his directions to Bill Murray in a hushed whisper, so awed was he to be working with the actor. Graciously, Murray deferred publicly to Anderson, helped haul equipment and - when Disney denied a helicopter scene that would have cost $75,000 - he gave Anderson a blank check to cover the cost.
