While we are waiting for the release of “Midnight in Paris” in May we don’t have a big news update for you. But small bits and pieces of news are coming in, so here is a little round-up:

According to People Rachel and her “Midnight in Paris” co-stars are invited and will appear during the Cannes Film Festival 2011. As you all know the movie is selected as opening film, so it’s most likely they will attend the opening, but usually more press days like a press conference and photocall come with releasing a film at Cannes. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

The festival’s previously announced Opening Selection, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, will bring to Cannes cast members Rachel McAdams, Michael Sheen, Owen Wilson, Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody and, it is anticipated, Marion Cotillard, though she is due to give birth at the end of April.

• The tickets for Michael Sheen’s “The Passion” are currently available and the full website is released. We reported before the Welsh media was reporting a possible surprise appearance of Rachel but no other confirmation or hints point to that at the moment. She isn’t listed in the official cast list, so we assume it’s just a rumor.

• We are saving the best news for last: according to Ash Grimes Rachel will grace the cover of Elle Magazine (US) of June 2011. She did a survey for their cover image & all 4 options were Rachel. As you may recall Rachel graced the cover of Elle back in 2007 but it would be amazing if they gave her another cover. We have to wait until the official confirmation, but it would be pretty awesome and good promotion for “Midnight in Paris“.

Update: Just received a tweet from Ash Grimes saying they are currently picking one out of four covers for the magazine. She will be wearing a white jacket or a peachy strapless dress for the cover, can not wait to see the cover and editorial. Self Magazine also reported the magazine cover for Rachel, so it’s safe to say we will see Rachel as Elle Magazine covergirl of June 2011.

    @Nick – I was exactly thinking the same thing, and I think we are right. Looked at her portfolio and she worked with Elle before and the photo looked like a photoshoot kind of location.
