    Cate Blanchett was speaking during a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival in Paris when she opened up about the nomenclature of her upcoming film, ‘Rumours’. The film is a dark comedy, directed by Guy Maddin, Evan Johnson and Galen Johnson.

    Speaking about the film during the Cannes presser, Blanchett said, “I did confirm something with Galen 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,‘” the ‘Tár’ star added. Adding to the conversation, Galen Johnson revealed that the the directors were looking at a “list of 10 best album names and ‘Rumours’ was on there and we liked that name.”

    “‘Rumours’ the album was famously creatively fraught and everyone was sleeping with each other, so it made sense to us,” Galen Johnson said. “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 on Saturday night at the Cannes Film Festival and was received quite well as it earned a four-minute standing ovation. The co-director of the film, Guy Maddin is celebrated for his experimental style, and is renowned for works like ‘The Saddest Music in the World‘ and ‘My Winnipeg‘. He partnered with the Johnsons for this project with high hopes riding on it.

    With a stellar cast including Alicia Vikander, Charles Dance, Roy Dupuis, Denis Ménochet, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Rolando Ravello, Takehiro Hira, and Zlatko Burić, the film tells the story of some world leaders who get lost in the woods as they get together to attend the G7 summit.

    Blanchett, meanwhile, is basking in the glory of her presence at Cannes after having previously attended the prestigious event for Todd Haynes’ ‘Carol‘ released in 2015, the same film that earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
