When Isaac Asimov
turned down the chance to adapt the story himself, Julie Corman
approached Paul Mayersberg
, then best known for writing The Man Who Fell to Earth
(1976). He passed so she tried a number of different writers. In July 1987 Corman eventually went back to Mayersberg after seeing his directorial debut, Captive
(1986). Mayersberg agreed to write the script if he could direct. Corman agreed. Mayersberg wrote the script in five weeks in London and the film was shot over an eight week period in October 1987. See more
