The producers of the film thought of Shakira for the leading role of Elena de la Vega, but the singer decided to reject the role because the character had to speak English, and at that time, she did not have a good level of English as she has now.

This film attracted attention because of the history of the character, who was an icon of the 60s and ’70s, and also because it had Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Stuart Wilson in the cast.

When the Colombian refused, the producers thought of Catherine Zeta-Jones for the role, who did a magnificent job alongside Antonio Banderas.
