Trivia

  • The Romeo Must Die soundtrack featured four songs by Aaliyah, and contributions from Timbaland & Magoo, DMX, Ginuwine, and others. The album's main single, "Try Again" by Aaliyah, was a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2000.
  • The film was originally slated to have a scene at the end where Jet Li and Aaliyah kiss, but was cut in the final release. Some fans were upset because they felt this meant that the production company was unwilling to strongly depict an interracial relationship, but the comments by Jet Li indicate that the scene was removed because in the film a bad situation happens to a family member, and it would be inappropriate for him to be kissing a girl immediately afterwards.
  • Romeo Must Die is Li's first lead role in English.
  • Apart from several establishing shots, the film was entirely shot in Vancouver, Canada.
