The UK website ibtimes.co.uk is reporting that Rachel is one of the contenders for the adaption of Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl“. They report that Emily Blunt is currently top contender for the movie. Reese Witerspoon is producing the movie.
The novel gains much of its suspense from switching between the perspective of a husband whose wife goes missing, and the missing wife herself. Other contenders for the starring role include Charlize Theron and Rachel McAdams, with Mad Men star Jon Hamm, Ryan Gosling and X-Men actor Michael Fassbender rumoured to be in the running for lead man.
Keep in mind that you should consider this as a rumor since I am not sure how reliable the source is and it seems more like an interpretation of what fans of the book want. I did decided to post it on here anyway, because various media outlets – including National Post – suggested before that Rachel would be a perfect fit for the female lead.
Comingsoon.net talked with producer Eric Fellner from Working Title. The production company is producing “About Time“. He talks about the movie, and also reveals they will probably change the May 10, 2013 release for the US. The first trailer for the movie got classified earlier this month, but it’s not yet released.
CS: Anyway, you guys are always working on a lot of different projects so what have you been working on for next year?
Fellner: We’ve got a new Richard Curtis movie called “About Time” which stars Rachel McAdams and a fantastic young actor called Domhnall Gleeson, who is Brendan Gleeson’s son. He was actually in “True Grit” and he was in “Anna Karenina” as well and he’s just gorgeous to watch on screen. It’s a beautiful Richard Curtis romantic comedy about the simplest of things in life which is two people who fall in love and have a family and that is it.
The very first trailer for “To The Wonder” was exclusively released by The Guardian today. The movie is expected to be released 22 February, 2013 in the UK after premiering during the Venice Film Festival. We added the high definition trailer in our media archive, be sure to watch it below.

We came across a more detailed synopsis for “About Time” released by Universal Pictures. Be sure to read it below, but be aware that it contains (possible) spoilers.
At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time… The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim’s father (Bill Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can’t change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life—so he decides to make his world a better place…by getting a girlfriend.
Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think. Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary (Rachel McAdams). They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means he’s never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again—and again—but finally, after a lot of cunning time-traveling, he wins her heart.
We already mentioned in our previous updates that Rachel’s upcoming movie “About Time” had it’s first test screenings in the UK, but now the movie also had test screenings in the US. Emma Freud, script editor of the movie, wrote on her official twitter account:
Good morning from LA. 1st US screening of new movie last night. Went scarily well. Rounds of applause during it and everything. Bloody phew! (Source)
We came across some tweets from people who were lucky enough to see the first version(s) of the movie already. You can find their reactions below/inside:
#AboutTime was great! Really fun #film. Definitely one to watch in 2013. (Source)
Domhnall Gleeson recently talked to Collider to promote his movie “Anna Karenina“. He also talked a little bit about working on “About Time” in which he stars with Rachel:
“I’m just lucky, I got to work with some really cool people this year. Richard is like, the man. It’s kind of about love and it’s about live and death and birth and it’s about all those things and how to live your life, a way to live your life, but it’s also a time travel comedy romantic thing. It’s very different to what he [Richard Curtis] has done before I think. His heart is in the same place, but it’s told differently. I am extremely excited, I loved making that film very much. Rachel McAdams is kind of wonderful -interviewer: [jokes] She is kind of okay – yeah she is amazing.”
The movie already had two test screenings in the UK and they also did a few days of reshoots in London with part of the cast. It will have it’s first test screening in Los Angeles, California tonight. Post-production is expected to last until late december of this year and the movie will hit theaters in the UK March 22, 2013 followed by a May 10, 2013 release for the US.
