To create the set of the library, around 10,000 books were used, which was donated by the Chicago Public Library. At first, it was decided that John Cusack would play the role of Bender. However, later, the role was give to Judd Nelson. In the end of the movie, John Hughes played a small part as Brian’s father. Anthony Michael Hall’s actual mother and sister played the character of Brian’s mother and sister.
