Albert H. Wolff, the last survivor of the real-life Untouchables, was a consultant to the film and helped Kevin Costner with his portrayal of Eliot Ness.

In the original script, the final gunfight had Ness and George Stone battling Capone gunmen on a stopped train. Brian DePalma conceived the gunfight on the steps in Chicago's Union Station when Paramount decided that finding a 1930's period train was too expensive.
