** Rob Marshall chose to make the film because he was enamored with 1960s Italian style.
* CaliforniaDoubling: The film was mostly shot in London, due to filming in Italy being quite expensive.
* TheCastShowOff: Penelope Cruz had trained as a singer and dancer in her childhood but had yet to show those skills in a film.

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/EmilyBlunt claims her agent kept trying to get her to audition for the film - possibly for Luisa or Stephanie given her age at the time. She was terrified at the idea of singing in front of people and refused. She got over it by the time Rob Marshall was making ''Film/IntoTheWoods''.


** Creator/JavierBardem was originally cast as Guido, but dropped out citing exhaustion following the 2007 Oscar season. Creator/GeorgeClooney and Creator/Johnny Depp were considered as replacements, and Creator/AntonioBanderas (who played the part on Broadway) turned it down before Creator/DanielDayLewis accepted.

Added DiffLines:

* RecursiveAdaptation: The film adaptation is an adaptation of a stage musical that is in itself a musical adaptation of the film ''Film/EightAndAHalf''.

Added DiffLines:

* AllStarCast: The movie stars Creator/DanielDayLewis, Creator/MarionCotillard, Creator/PenelopeCruz, Creator/JudiDench, Creator/NicoleKidman, Creator/SophiaLoren, Creator/KateHudson and... Stacy Ferguson of the Music/BlackEyedPeas (aka Fergie). The first six are Oscar winners, the seventh a nominee. Didn't stop most critics from panning it, though the performances still got praised.
* AwesomeDearBoy: The reason Daniel Day Lewis took the role. He had been hoping to take a break after his previous film, and producers never believed he would accept it.
* DawsonCasting: Subverted. Guido in the original show is angsting about turning forty. Daniel Day Lewis was fifty at the time, so they aged Guido up by ten years. It also adds another layer to his marriage to Luisa, given the fifteen year difference between Lewis and Marion Cotillard.
* DyeingForYourArt: Both Fergie and Penelope Cruz were required to gain seventeen pounds for the film.
* FakeNationality:
** Sophia Loren is the only actual Italian in the film's cast. That being said, a few characters who were Italian in the stage version change nationalities to accommodate their actors. Carla becomes Spanish because of Penelope Cruz, Stephanie becomes American for Kate Hudson, and Lilli is English for Judi Dench (although her last name is La Fleur, indicating that she might be French). Luisa is said to have Italian ancestry but is meant to be French, like Marion Cotillard.
** Claudia meanwhile has an ambiguously continental European accent and the last name Jenssen - implying she's either Danish, Norwegian or Swiss. Presumably this is because the fair skinned blonde Nicole Kidman would not be [[LatinoIsBrown believably Italian]] to audiences.
* MethodActing: Daniel Day Lewis learned Italian and frequently spoke it on set for the role. He also had his dressing room designed like a 1960s director's office.
* TheOtherMarty: Javier Bardem was cast as Gudio in the film. But he dropped out due to exhaustion, and Daniel Day Lewis was cast instead.
