Filmed back-to-back with Wishmaster 4: The Prophecy Fulfilled (2002). There essentially was a weekend between filming the two movies in 2000.
Andrew Divoff was set to reprise his role as The Djinn in Wishmaster 3 and had even written an original draft, but the producers didn't like it so they went with Alex Wright's script instead, Andrew hated it and left.
Was filmed in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Both the third and fourth films were shot on a tight 16 day scheduled shoot according to the director Chris Angel.
Both the third and fourth film have been noted as going more of an Action-Fantasy route as opposed to a Horror-Fantasy genre style like the last two films. Both sequelshave also been noted for their Cinemax late night programming type vibes (cheesy acting, softcore style nudity, low budget filmmaking).
Noted for being a simpler rehash of the 1997 original film.
