Trivia The Shawshank Redemption

Morgan Freeman's favorite film of his own. Director Frank Darabont watched 'Goodfellas' (1990) every Sunday while shooting this film and drew inspiration from it, on using voice-over narration and showing the passage of time. Jeff Bridges, Tom Hanks, Kevin Costner, Tom Cruise, Nicolas Cage, Johnny Depp and Charlie Sheen were all considered for the part of Andy Dufresne. Hanks turned it down because he was committed to 'Forrest Gump' (1994). Costner liked the script a lot but was then embroiled in the filming of 'Waterworld' (1995).
