Plans to film The Ninth Cloud (then titled Bob's Not Gay) were announced in 2006. The following year William Baldwin, Irène Jacob, and Julia Jentsch signed on to perform in the film, and filming was slated to begin May 2007 in Bucharest. Financial difficulties delayed shooting and the film's working title and star lineup changed several times. Actor Guillaume Depardieu was at one point attached to the movie but Spencer was forced to recast after Depardieu died in 2008. After casting Madsen and Maczko, Spencer began and completed principal shooting in 2011 and the film was in post production in 2012 and 2013.
