On 5 June 2013 it was revealed in the British media that the director had funded the film by filing false VAT tax returns to the British government. Driscoll is alleged to have falsely claimed the movie's budget to be $15 million, the figure was actually only $1.5 million, boosted by a further $2.35 million defrauded from HMRC.
