Shane Black's original draft was very different than the final film. Besides having a darker tone with more violence, almost the entire second half of the script was completely different. Besides many differences with the plot and characters, Black's script also included more focus on the two villains Milo and Shelly Marcone. Milo, for example, was an even nastier villain than he is in the film.
Joe Hallenbeck (Bruce Willis) gets the drop on a man who is holding him at gunpoint by distracting him with jokes. Disarming a gunman through a diversion is one of screenwriter Shane Black's trademarks, also seen in The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996) and his directorial debut Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005).
