Universal reluctantly agreed to purchase the remake rights and hired David and Janet Peoples to write the screenplay.

The story is disconcerting. It deals with time, madness and a perception of what the world is or isn't.
It is a study of madness and dreams, of death and re-birth, set in a world coming apart. Universal's production of Waterworld had resulted in various cost overruns.
To get 12 Monkeys approved for production, Gilliam persuaded Willis to lower his normal asking price. Gilliam's initial casting choices were Nick Nolte as James Cole and Jeff Bridges as Jeffrey Goines, but Universal objected.
Gilliam cast Madeleine Stowe as Dr. Kathryn Railly because he was impressed by her performance in Blink Gilliam originally believed that Pitt was not right for the role of Jeffrey Goines, but the casting director convinced him otherwise.
By the time of 12 Monkeys ' release, Interview with the Vampire , Legends of the Fall , and Se7en had been released, making Pitt an A-list actor, which drew greater attention to the film and boosted its box-office standing.

Gilliam used the same filmmaking style as he had in Brazil , including the art direction and cinematography specifically using fresnel lenses.
Gilliam intended to show Cole being interviewed through a multi-screen interrogation TV set because he felt the machinery evoked a "nightmarish intervention of technology.
You try to see the faces on the screens in front of you, but the real faces and voices are down there and you have these tiny voices in your ear.
To me that's the world we live in, the way we communicate these days, through technical devices that pretend to be about communication but may not be.
The art department made sure that the underground world only used pre technology as a means to depict the bleakness of the future.
Gilliam, Beecroft, and Crispian Sallis set decorator went to several flea markets and salvage warehouses looking for materials to decorate the sets.
