Rachel McAdams is undoubtedly the queen of romantic movies. When the rain fell, and she leaped into Ryan Gosling’s arms in The Notebook, she became a phenomenon!
Six years later, Channing Tatum jumped off of a pier, and into our hearts when he fell in love with Amanda Seyfried in Dear John.
So, what happens when you bring two Sparks alums, Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, together?
The Hollywood Reporter posts that McAdams and Tatum are going to star in a new romance called The Vow, which will have Michael Sucsy (Grey Gardens) directing. Based on a true story, the pair will star as a newlywed couple in New Mexico who get into a car crash. She’s put in a coma, and when she awakens, she’s lost all memory of her husband and their marriage, so he has to pitch the woo and try to win her love back again.
Apparently this love story has been in the works for a really long time — over a decade — and was once shaping up as a romance for Julia Roberts. Right now, McAdams has a few films that head into production this year, so best case scenario, The Vow won’t get cooking until this winter, at the earliest.
This movie looks so good, it gave me goosebumps! Rachel McAdams AND Patrick Wilson!? Yes please! I cannot wait!!!
Paramount Pictures has debuted the trailer for Morning Glory, opening November 12 and starring Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Patrick Wilson and Jeff Goldblum. The studio describes the comedy as follows:
When hard–working TV producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) is fired from a local news program, her career begins to look as bleak as her hapless love life. Stumbling into a job at “Daybreak” (the last–place national morning news show), Becky decides to revitalize the show by bringing on legendary TV anchor Mike Pomeroy (Ford). Unfortunately, Pomeroy refuses to cover morning show staples like celebrity gossip, weather, fashion and crafts – let alone work with his new co–host, Colleen Peck (Keaton), a former beauty queen and longtime morning show personality who is more than happy covering morning “news.” As Mike and Colleen clash, first behind the scenes and then on the air, Becky’s blossoming love affair with fellow producer, Adam Bennett (Wilson) begins to unravel – and soon Becky is struggling to save her relationship, her reputation, her job and ultimately, the show itself.
Rachel McAdams is in negotiations to star opposite Owen Wilson and Marion Cotillard in Woody Allen’s untitled movie scheduled to shoot in the summer.
As with most Allen movies, plot details are being kept under wraps, though the setting for the ensemble is France. Spain’s Mediapro is financing and plans to sell the movie in Cannes.
McAdams’ boarding comes on the heels of Allen’s latest movie, the London-set “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” being acquired by Sony Pictures Classics. “Stranger” also was financed by Mediapro.
McAdams is coming off the success of “Sherlock Holmes” and has on her docket Terrence Malick’s untitled movie project, in which she will co-star with Christian Bale, Javier Bardem and Olga Kurylenko. The movie shoots this year.
The actress, repped by UTA and Magnolia Entertainment, next appears with Harrison Ford in the J.J. Abrams-produced “Morning Glory,” which Paramount releases Oct. 28.
