Initially, the film had a completely different ending in two versions with minor differences. After Caroline and John detained Lizzy, she began to confess, and John shot her before she could say more and quietly disappeared, Caroline and her colleague Jackson went to the lake to collect money. John showed up there too, wounded Jackson with a knife and began to fight Caroline in the water. The film’s director, David Ayer, shot two versions of this scene. Caroline is saved, and John confronts two police cars. When he tries to leave with the money, he kills the police and prepares to leave in one of the cars. In the first version, Caroline appears at this moment and kills John. In the second, John shot Caroline before she could press the trigger and drove away.
Also, David Ayer said that “Sabotage” was greatly reduced by the studio to make the film more actionable, thus changing the original idea of the detective thriller. The original version of the film was rumored to last about 3 hours.
