Unlike most films, where budget restrictions require shooting the scenes out of order, CAST AWAY was shot in story order. It was also made over a 16-month period with a year-long hiatus in the middle--in which Hanks lost the 55 pounds and grew a beard to show the effects of his time on the island. During this hiatus director Zemeckis made WHAT LIES BENEATH with Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer.
The film was shot in Moscow (where the production shut down Red Square for shooting), at Federal Express headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee, in Texas, in Los Angeles (at Sony Pictures Studios and FedEx), and on an uninhabited island in Fiji called Monu-riki.
FedEx founder and owner Fred Smith makes a cameo appearance in the film, which was made with the full support of Federal Express.
CAST AWAY was the highest grossing film released in the year 2000, making over $230 million.
