Rachel nervous about Sherlock film

Rachel McAdams has confessed she was a bit nervous at the prospect of starring in the new Sherlock Holmes movie.

I always get nervous before I start – at the beginning even,” the actress, who plays Sherlock’s love interest Irene Adler in the Guy Ritchie film, tells Access Hollywood.

“Fortunately, I think Irene isn’t as well known to the general public so we have a little bit of room to experiment with her which leaves the door wide open.”

Rachel will star opposite Robert Downey Jr who plays Holmes and Jude Law as Dr Watson.

“Irene is mentioned in the book as ‘the woman‘ and the only woman Sherlock has ever mentioned,” says Rachel.

The entire cast emphasized the fact that this will be a sexier, more action-packed Holmes, but also made reference to the fact that his bare-knuckle boxing and martial arts skills are deeply rooted in the writing of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

For her part, McAdams describes her character as an underworld adventuress with a criminal mind, but who also has her romantic and “delicious” sides. She says it will be a pleasure working with Downey Jr. and Ritchie, whom she calls a “collaborative, experimental director.”

While the character only appeared in that one story, McAdams’ personage would return for any possible sequel.

Warner Bros. Pictures has set a November 20, 2009 release date for the Guy Ritchie-directed Sherlock Holmes movie.

The Notebook actress will play Irene Adler, Holmes’s enigmatic love interest. The character appeared in one Sir Arthur Conan Doyle novel, 1891’s A Scandal In Bohemia, but the film incarnation is envisioned as a recurring character in a franchise.

Sherlock Holmes is scheduled for release in 2010.

Married Life on DVD

Pitt, Damon, McAdams Front-Load Toronto Fest

Our neighbors to the north are readying one heck of a welcome wagon next month, when some of Hollywood’s finest are set to hit the red carpet—and debut a movie or two—at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival.

Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and Canada’s own Rachel McAdams are among the latest crop of A-listers set to make the Gala scene during the fest, which runs Sept. 4-13.

Booked to appear, though not to premiere films, at the fest are Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Julian Schnabel who, along with several other Industry vets, will appear on the fest’s Mavericks roster, giving informal talks throughout the week on their filmmaking experiences.

Also expected at the fest to introduce their films: Appaloosa‘s Viggo Mortensen and Renée Zellweger and BlindnessMark Ruffalo, Julianne Moore and Gael García Bernal.

Roughly 249 films in all are expected to be screened during the cinematic week, with premieres from Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Colin Farrell, Peter O’Toole, Tim Robbins, Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jessica Biel and Jeff Goldblum all making the cut.

Claiming a bulk of the potentially appearing talent is the scheduled premiere of New York, I Love You, the follow-up to Paris, Je T’aime, a collection of 12 short films directed by Johansson and Portman, among others, and starring Orlando Bloom, Ethan Hawke, Shia LaBeouf and Christina Ricci.

Also making its North American premiere at the fest is Ethan and Joel Coen‘s Burn After Reading, starring a couple of little-known actors: George Clooney and Pitt. The film will get its worldwide premiere at the Venice Film Festival, which Clooney is booked to attend, just days before Toronto.

Meanwhile, Beckinsale’s dramatic turn in Nothing But the Truth is also scheduled to premiere during the fest, with the actress playing a political reporter who is jailed for naming a CIA agent.

Norton, Farrell and Jon Voight will also grace the big screen during the week, appearing in the premiere of the cop-family drama Pride & Glory. Rounding out the politically minded films is The Lucky Ones, starring McAdams and Tim Robbins, following a group of returning U.S. soldiers who embark on a road trip.

Proving her absurd saturation of the market, a film about, though not starring, Paris Hilton, is also set to premiere at the festival. The documentary Paris, Not France, examines the pop culture phenom and is directed by Adria Petty.

Another documentary film that’s been added to the Contemporary World lineup is an as-yet unnamed biography chronicling the life of late Real World: San Francisco housemate Pedro Zamora. Showing in the same lineup is the comedy $5 a Day, starring Christopher Walken, Amanda Peet and Sharon Stone.
