Trivia

David Ritchie, a set-dresser on the Toronto shoot, was killed while dismantling part of the set.
The crew was allowed to film inside the Colosseum for three days, under 3 conditions: no equipment could be placed on the ground, they could only shoot from 6:30 to 8:30 am and 3:30 to 5:30 pm to avoid disturbing tourists, and the only lighting allowed was natural sunlight.
Eminem reportedly turned down an offer to star in the lead role. But an MTV report quoted director Doug Liman saying that his plan to have Eminem in the movie was dropped right after he met Hayden Christensen.
Roland (Samuel L. Jackson) encounters David (Hayden Christensen) and attacks him with a saber-like electric prod. This can be considered an inside joke among fans of the Star Wars series. Both Jackson and Christensen famously starred in the prequel trilogy as Jedis.
David mentions King Kong while on the Empire State Building. Jamie Bell who plays Griffin in this movie, played Jimmy in the movie King Kong (2005).
The movie takes place in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The high school depicted is Huron High School, which writer David S. Goyer attended. Area teens were cast as extras for scenes in and around the school.
Originally, Tom Sturridge was cast as Davey, and Teresa Palmer was cast as Millie. After 2 months of filming and rising production costs, Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson were recast as the leads.
Actress AnnaSophia Robb had to dye her hair (or use a brunette wig) and use dark brown contact lenses.
In the original novel, Roland Cox's first name was Brian. It was most likely changed to avoid confusion with actor Brian Cox. The character's name was changed from Brian to Roland to reflect the stories of ancient France. The paladins, led by Roland, served Charlemagne similar to the stories of England's Arthur and the knights of the round table. Since the paladins were not in the novel on which the movie was based, and were added to the screenplay, the name Roland is more appropriate.

Evan Rachel Wood turned down the role of "Millie". The part eventually went to Rachel Bilson.
The French title "Jumper - Franchir le temps" implies falsely time travels.

David persuades Griffin that they should do a 'marvel team up' to take on Roland. Samuel J Jackson plays Roland and also plays Marvels Nick Fury, a character that is largely responsible for marvels biggest team up to date with the Avengers
