Cate Blanchett's New Movie Named After Fleetwood Mac Album

Actress Cate Blanchett has confirmed that her new movie, Rumours, took its name from the legendary band Fleetwood Mac.

The political satire follows a group of politicians who congregate at a G7 summit, where they are tasked with drafting a group statement on "the global crisis," but get entangled in debauchery and love connections.

During a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival last week, Blanchett explained that the beloved record inspired the title for her forthcoming dark comedy, which is directed by Galen Johnson, Evan Johnson and Guy Maddin:

"I did confirm something with Galen (Johnson, Director) last night, and it's weird that it never came up in rehearsal, which is: 'Why the hell is this movie called Rumours?' "And my husband had said, 'Is that after the Fleetwood Mac album?' And you said, 'Yes it was.'"

Johnson added: "'Rumours' the album was famously creatively fraught and everyone was sleeping with each other, so it made sense to us. No one questioned it. We thought people, producers and financiers, would be like, 'Why Rumours?' But no one ever questioned it, so it just made the title."

'Rumours' premiered at Cannes and received a four-minute standing ovation. It also stars Alicia Vikander, Charles Dance, Roy Dupuis, Denis Ménochet, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Rolando Ravello, Takehiro Hira and Zlatko Burić. An exact release date is yet to be confirmed.
