Rumor Has It... (2005) Poster


Early in the film's pre-production stages, Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft were strongly considered for the roles of Beau Burroughs and Katherine Richelieu. But when Bancroft died, and Hoffman had filming commitments for several other projects, the roles were given to Kevin Costner and Shirley MacLaine.
Shirley MacLaine was originally offered the role of Elaine in The Graduate (1967), but turned it down.
This was the first movie in history to be released to HDDVD, which had a standard definition and high definition version on the same disc.
The Huttinger family house is the same house from Father of the Bride (1991).
Along with President Bill Clinton and Fidel Castro, the picture on the far left is Beau (Kevin Costner) with Rob Reiner (the director). Hugh Hefner was originally supposed to be pictured, but Hefner objected at the last minute. Reiner was added in digitally.
The film cast includes three Oscar winners: Kevin Costner, Kathy Bates, and Shirley MacLaine; and two Oscar nominees: Richard Jenkins and Mark Ruffalo.
The film takes place in 1997.
The Screenwriter Ted Griffin was the original Director, but was fired after just twelve days of shooting, which resulted in Rob Reiner taking over. Production had to be shut down for a few days as Reiner was allowed to make script, cast, and crew changes before filming eventually resumed. As a result of this, original cast members Charlie Hunnam, Lesley Ann Warren, Tony Bill, and Greta Scacchi were all let go from the project.

In the beginning of the film, on the plane, Jennifer Aniston's character says she's not wearing her engagement ring so she doesn't "steal my sisters thunder". On Friends (1994), Rachel stole Monica's thunder on her engagement night, by kissing Ross.
With only a thirty-five-year age difference between them, Shirley MacLaine was really too young to be playing the grandmother of Jennifer Aniston. Unless you do the math. If Shirley gave birth at the age of seventeen, and her child fathered or gave birth to Jennifer at the age of eighteen, then MacLaine isn't too young.
