So to sum up: Rachel will have 5 feature films, including one animated movie, expected to get released this year and let’s not forget the release of “True Detective” season 2. Keep in mind that it’s only early January so a lot can change and movie releases can get pushed back or get delayed. The first 3 projects (Untitled Cameron Crowe/Hawaii Project, The Little Price, & True Detective) seem to have firm release dates and let’s not forget about the possibility of Rachel filming another project – or maybe even projects – this year.
