Production[edit]

Director Lucio Fulci stated that both 002 operazione luna and The Two Parachutists had more restrictions put on him than usual.[1] Fulci explained that both films were shot in seven weeks,[1] despite the title, the film is not a spy spoof and there are few scenes set in outer space.[3] Along with Warriors of the Year 2072, this film was among the two films that had Fulci attempt a science fiction themed production.[3]

Fulci has proclaimed that to film the scene where a space ship takes off in the film, he used four lights, a black cloth over a stage with a lot of little bulks on the floor for stars that was shot in slow motion.[1][3] Fulci referred to this scene as "a source of pride for me!".[1][3] Howarth, a Fulci biographer commented that Fulci's memory must have wrong, as the scene in the film is accomplished through stock footage.[3]
