One of the approved sketches that the poster was based on.

For this design, I started working from a number of sketches that had been created. We scheduled a shoot in Georgia with Tom Wopat, Jeff Fahey, and Patricia Richardson. All their images were shot on black seamless. For the poster we intentionally had them not face the camera or look directly into the lens. Our photographer, Chris Edwards, did a great job capturing each one of them.

Back in Photoshop, I composited the images, using the sketch as my guide. In the end, we created a serious and brooding feel without making it too dark, as to turn off potential viewers. We also simplified the poster from the original sketch. In early versions we included some of the action scenes from the movie into Tom's body, but took them out for the final version.
