David Caesar first wrote the script in 1983. The Australian Film Commission had provided Caesar money to research the script in Alice Springs and offered him $1 million to make the movie but Caesar felt that he needed $2 million. In the late 1980s he almost got the film funded through the Film Finance Corporation but was unable and instead made Greenkeeper.
Prime Mover grossed $52,119 at the box office in Australia.
