The film was shot by brothers Aaron Nee Nee and Adam. Adam Nee sits not only behind the camera, but even before that: he assumes the role of Tom Sawyer. Kyle Gallner and Matthew Gray Gubler worked together already in an episode of the series of criminal minds in the Grubler embodies the Dr. Spencer Reid.
The history of the two rascals, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn was originally created by Mark Twain. With his novels the adventures of Tom Sawyer and adventures of Huckleberry Finn, are his most famous works and are considered classics of American literature. Some allusions in the film are also reminiscent of the classic: Cooper Huckabee, who plays the muff Potter, Lee Garlington as Mrs. Polly (in the book: Aunt Polly), Beth Grant as the widow and Beth Grant as Tom’s girlfriend Becky.
