During the home seizure scene, that occurs in the earlier moments of the film, the SWAT and DEA members appeared so real to the residents of the neighborhood that they called the police. Soon word spread that a home in town was being raided by the DEA and local residents began driving by to the point that production needed to be stopped. Although already notified the police had not received the notice and came by to temporarily shut down production as well. It wasn't until the residents of the neighborhood and the police were reassured that production was restarted. The filming and the confusion that ensued received the attention of a local newspaper which published an article on the event.
During one of the many night shoots on Clandestine there was an "occurrence". While setting up a shot outside the Director and DP heard a loud crash, they quickly went to the front of the house to discover that a car had hit one of the crew's parked vans pushing it nearly 40 feat down the road and up an embankment. That car then proceeded to slide across the street on its side and hit into another crew car blasting out that crew car's side window. The cast and crew quickly ran to the car now on its side as one of the producers called 911. The cast quickly removed their police and DEA uniforms and stayed with the individual in the car until police, fire, and paramedics arrived. The young girl driving the car was unharmed but her car was totaled and she was charged with a DWI. Luckily no one was seriously injured but the irony of a film about addiction having such a close and potentially deadly encounter was very evident.
Writer Kate A. McGrath began writing the script in 2002. The story is partially based on some real events that her father had told her about during his time as a Police Officer in Long Island, NY.
