In a movie about people who would stop aging at 25 years old, many of the actors, including Cillian Murphy and Justin Timberlake, were in their late 20s and early 30s. Amanda Seyfried, however, really was 25 years old during filming.
The car Will buys for 59 years is a 1969 Jaguar XK-E convertible.
Many of the character names are those of famous, and not so famous, watchmakers. The name Weis is pronounced the same as the watchmaker Albert Wajs.

Sci-fi writer Harlan Ellison launched a lawsuit against New Regency and director Andrew Niccol, claiming that the film's plot bore an uncanny similarity to his short story "Repent Harlequin! Said the Ticktockman". Initially, Ellison was seeking an injunction against the film's release, which he then watered down to a request for onscreen credit. Ultimately the case was dropped with no money exchanging hands between any of the parties.
Working titles included "Now" and "I'm.mortal".
The timekeepers drive identically modified 1970 Dodge Challengers.
The Timekeepers keep their ration of one day in a box called a Per Diem. In Latin, "per diem" means "for each day".
