People I Know was fully financed by the global sales and distribution company Myriad Pictures for $22 million and during filming in April 2001, Miramax came onboard as US distributor. Miramax delayed the release of the Al Pacino vehicle after the September 11th attacks and the pic had scenes that took place at the World Trade Center, which were re-edited. Miramax then unsuccessfully tried to sell the film off to another distributor. It collected dust for almost two years before it was dumped with barely a sign that it even existed. People I Know opened in 5 theaters to $34,211 — never expanded beyond 8 locations and closed its brief theatrical run with just $126,793. The film was mostly dumped straight to video overseas throughout 2003 and 2004 and pulled in $5,572,241 across numerous distributors.
