Lindsey   October 19th, 2014   Every Thing Will Be Fine, Movie News Comments Off

Director and writer Wim Wenders sat down with THR during the Rome Film Festival to promote his new documentary but he also talked about his upcoming feature film “Every Thing Will Be Fine” in which Rachel co-stars. He reveals the movie will be in post-production for at least another 6 months which means we don’t be seeing it in 2014.

One of the secrets to the film’s success according to Wenders was his taking his time with the film, spending one-and-a-half years on the editing process alone. Wenders has spent an even longer time on his upcoming narrative film Everything Will be Fine, a 3D family story that takes place over 14 years, starring James Franco, Rachel McAdams and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Franco plays a writer who accidentally causes the death of a child, an event that haunts him over the course of his life.

But the director’s decision to spend more time on projects wasn’t entirely voluntary. “Fiction is getting more and more complex, and the process of making a movie is so much more time-consuming than when I started out 30-40 years ago,” Wenders told The Hollywood Reporter. “When I was a young man, I made a new film every year like clockwork orange, like only Woody Allen is still doing. And today, a normal fiction film takes four, five, six years.”

Lindsey   September 12th, 2014   A Most Wanted Man, Interviews, Movie News, Press Archive Comments Off

We wanted to remind you that “A Most Wanted Man” is released in cinemas in the UK and Ireland starting today. You can buy tickets and find the theater near you via the official facebook app. The movie premiered during Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and was released late July in the US. It already grossed close to $16 million in the US. The movie holds a Certified Fresh Rating at Rotten Tomatoes with a 91% score.

The UK press released two new interviews with Rachel so far which are both added in our press archive. You can find some excerpts below:

On the German dialect: “Even just learning the dialect and the flavour of the German sound informs this new kind of person in me. Sometimes the further from what you imagine yourself to be the better, because then you find you’re probably closer to those people than you think.”

On her upcoming movie slate: “I’m not really a creature of habit. I like trying everything out.”

On making films: “Making a film, it’s just the right combination of people and place and time, and whatever is going on in the world around you. It’s so elusive. I think you start with a desire and a yearning to tell a certain story, and you kind of have to let the rest go. Maybe that’s very naïve, but so far that’s what I have tried to do.”

We also wanted to share this wonderful quote from director Anton Corbijn on casting Rachel in the movie (Via Hot Press):

“Rachel’s a naturally charming woman. I just thought that it would be interesting to have her in a more demanding and serious role, and that kind of charm will stay. That’s how she gets people to be on her side. She plays this young girl who gets in over her head really, but she means really well, she’s idealistic and kind of naïve in her handling of it all.”

Lindsey   August 15th, 2014   Movie News, Southpaw 1 Comment

The local news source WTAE is reporting that “Southpaw” wrapped up filming earlier this week in Pittsburgh. The movie was expected to wrap up filming on Monday but there were several sightings of an additional shooting day on Tuesday. Rachel will star in the movie alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, 50 Cent, Naomie Harris, Victor Ortiz, and Oona Laurence. Antoine Fuqua is directing and the screenplay is written by Kurt Sutter.

Rachel began pre-production for the movie in June by attending the Miguel Cotto Vs. Sergio Martinez Fight in Madison Square in New York. The production began June 16 in Indiana for two weeks and headed to Pittsburgh for the final 6 weeks. The movie will be distributed by The Weinstein Company in the US but no release date has been announced yet. We expect it will be released next year.

Some late casting news: Rita Ora recently revealed she “wrapped up another movie in Pittsburgh” with director Antoine Fuqua during her interview with Ryan Seacrest. It hasn’t been reported yet that Ora joined the cast but we assume it’s for a smaller part. Many thanks to my friend Nick for the heads up!

Lindsey   August 8th, 2014   Movie News, News & Rumors, Spotlight 3 Comments

The Wrap broke the news that Rachel is ‘being eyed’ for the female lead alongside Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Stanley Tucci in Thomas McCarthy’s upcoming movie “Spotlight“. Deadline is also reporting that Aaron Eckhart and Liev Schreiber joined the cast and that they are aiming to start filming this fall in Boston and Toronto. THR is reporting that Rachel and Ruffalo, Keaton, and Tucci are all in “advanced talks” to board the movie.

Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Stanley Tucci are all in talks to star in Tom McCarthy’s “Spotlight,” which follows the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe journalists who exposed the Catholic Church’s decades-long cover-up of child molestation in Massachusetts, multiple individuals familiar with the prestige project have told TheWrap.

Ruffalo is nearing a deal to play Michael Rezendes, while Rachel McAdams is being eyed for the female lead of Sacha Pfeiffer. McAdams has an official offer, though she has not started formal negotiations yet.

Participant Media is financing the project, which is being produced by Anonymous Content and Rocklin/Faust. Open Road has come on to handle domestic distribution.

Steve Golin and Michael Sugar of Anonymous Content are producing with Nicole Rocklin and Blye Faust. David Mizner, who brought the project to Rocklin/Faust, will consult and serve as an associate producer.

Producers have secured life rights of the Globe reporters responsible, including Spotlight Team members Rezendes, Pfeiffer and Matt Carroll, Spotlight Team editor Walter “Robby” Robinson, special projects editor Ben Bradlee Jr. and Globe editor Marty Baron.
