The movie was followed by a sequel Vabank II.

The following weapons were used in the film Vabank:


Unidentified revolver 1

An unidentified revolver is seen through the movie. While mostly looking like a Russian or Polish Nagant M1895, it has a different shape of the front side of the frame, similar to the one used on target versions of Nagant, and a short ejector rod. The revolver appears to be a single movie prop, wielded by various characters and fitted with two different sound suppressors.
