Bet You Didn’t Know: Secrets Behind the Making of “Set It Off”

Who is Stoney?

Several members of the cast and director, F. Gary Gray have said that the script, originally written by Takashi Bufford and Kate Lanier, went through significant rewrites and edits. One of the bigger changes came to Jada Pinkett Smith’s character, Stoney. Originally, she was supposed to be a krackhead. (Yikes!) Thankfully, the cast and crew decided it would be better if all of the women  were placed in desperate circumstances to eventually make them resort to robbing banks. Maybe all the rewrites led to a bit of inconsistency in the script because Stoney, who at one point says she’s never been to New York, later says that she’s from the Bronx. Whoops!
