...Speaking of Woody Allen, his upcoming project adds Rachel McAdams to its cast!

Since there's always two Woody Allen movies being discussed at once (since he moves on to his next project before his previous one hits theaters), it's somewhat apt to have the first post of the day and the last post of yesterday both be about his films. His upcoming film that he's prepping to shoot has added to its cast, as you can see in this article from The Hollywood Reporter:

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.

-This is shaping up to be very interesting...thoughts?


  1. Owen Wilson seems a bit out of place, but in Woody I trust...

  2. I think Owen's an inspired choice, I keep thinking about his work in Royal Tenenbaums and Darjeeling Limited so I think it could work. I hope Rachel McAdams finally like really breaks through, like after her terrific work in Mean Girls her career hasn't ignited like i'd hoped.

  3. I like him a lot, but it just seem to fit in my brain, but I'm more than open to being wrong. Agreed about McAdams...
