According to a press release issued by Touchstone Pictures, "Deja Vu" has the distinction of being the first movie to begin production in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina devastated the area. The film was originally scheduled to begin filming in October but the production had to be cancelled when the huge storm hit. There was a possibility "Deja Vu" could have filmed elsewhere however the filmmakers decided that only Orleans Parish could provide the right setting for the film. Scott and Jerry Bruckheimer have even worked Hurricane Katrina into the script by including lines of dialogue referencing the event and shots of debris and destruction left by the killer storm.
The film features Denzel Washington as an ATF agent who falls in love with a complete stranger while racing against time to track down her killer.
Jerry Bruckheimer is producing "Deja Vu" under his Jerry Bruckheimer Films banner. Bill Marsilii and Terry Rossio wrote the script and Mike Stenson, Chad Oman, and Barry H Waldman are executive producing.
The team behind the camera includes cinematographer Paul Cameron, production designer Chris Seagers, costume designer Ellen Mirojnick, and editor Chris Lebenzon.
