Variety is reporting that Rachel and Elisabeth Moss is in the running for the female lead for the second season of “True Detective“.

Pieces look to be coming together on season 2 of HBO’s “True Detective,” as sources have confirmed Justin Lin is in talks to direct a handful of episodes for the drama series.

It’s unknown how many he would direct, but insiders add that he will not direct every episode as Cary Fukunaga did for season one.

No cast has been confirmed by the network but Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn are in final negotiations to join the show. The fourth lead, which has always been intended to be a female character, is still being figured out but sources say “Mad Men” actress Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams are in the running.

Nic Pizzolatto is writing the second season, which is set in California and is said to revolve around the investigation of a corrupt city manager who gets murdered amidst a potential groundbreaking transportation deal.

Deadline is also reporting that Justin Lin is in talks to direct but only mentions that “search is underway for a female lead, with a number of actresses auditioning”. I feel like I should add there are and have been a lot of rumors about the anticipated second season of “True Detective” but we really hope this report it true. Let’s hope we will find out more news soon!

Entertainment Tonight Canada’s host Cheryl Hickey challenged Rachel to do the #ALSIceBucketChallenge earlier this week. Rachel’s friend and actress Zoie Palmer – you might remember her from the adorable joint interview she did with Rachel for ET Canada – shared the video of Rachel accepting the challenge via her official twitter account @zoiepalmer. Rachel challenged Zoie Palmer, who is also in the video accepting the challenge, and her dad Lance McAdams, her sister Kayleen McAdams and Canadian writer Margaret Atwood.



You have probably heard about the challenge by now since it’s taking (social) media by storm but for more information about the challenge and find out how to donate be sure to head over to alsa.org or als.ca.

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.

The Wrap is reporting that Rachel and her sister (and make-up artist) Kayleen will be featured in season five (second season at TLC) of “Who Do You Think You Are?“. As we reported on our official twitter account Rachel was spotted filming in Plymouth (UK) a few weeks ago for a series about “her ancestry” but now we officially have confirmation. BBC originally aired the genealogy documentary series in the UK and the American version was adapted by NBC before moving to TLC last year. It has not yet been announced when the episode with Rachel and Kayleen is going to air but the series premiere is July 23 at 9/8c.

The second season of TLC’s genealogy docu-series “Who Do You Think You Are?” will feature six new journeys with Valerie Bertinelli, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Lauren Graham, Kelsey Grammer, Cynthia Nixon, Rachel McAdams and her sister, Kayleen McAdams.

Also, TLC has acquired 10 episodes from the show’s previous seasons on NBC. The episodes feature Matthew Broderick, Lisa Kudrow, Rob Lowe, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brooke Shields, Vanessa Williams and Rita Wilson.

The show returns for its second season on TLC and its fifth season overall on Wednesday, July 23 at 9/8c.

Rachel made it onto The Wrap‘s The Most and Least Liked Summer Movie Actresses 2014 List at #3 because she will appear in “A Most Wanted Man” this summer. She tied with Angelina Jolie who will appear in “Maleficent” this summer.

A study of adults 18-49 conducted for TheWrap found that the “X-Men: Days of Future Past” star has a 27 Positive Q Score, well-above average for a celebrity. Q Scores are a research tool used by TV networks as well as studios in determining how favorably or unfavorably celebrities are viewed by consumers.

Lawrence topped her closest fellow actress, Melissa McCarthy (“Tammy”), by two points. “Maleficent” actress Angelina Jolie and Rachel McAdams of “A Most Wanted Man” tied for third among actresses, each with a 23.

Here’s how Q Scores work. The Q Scores company provides a celebrity’s name and a brief description to more than 1,800 study participants. The viewers are asked if they recognize the person, and how they feel about him or her.

Be sure to go to The Wrap to see the entire list. Other actresses on the list are Meryl Streep, Shailene Woodley, and her Untitled Cameron Crowe/Hawaii co-star Emma Stone. “A Most Wanted Man” will be released on July 25 in the US and September 5 in the UK and Ireland.

Open Casting Call is reporting that there will be an open casting for “Southpaw” this Saturday (May 24) in Indiana and the second one is next week (May 31) in Pittsburg. Filming will start next month until early August and the casting call seems to confirm that Rachel, Lupita Nyong’o, and Forest Whitaker officially joined Jake Gyllenhaal in the movie. Keep in mind that Rachel’s involvement has only been reported so far, still no word from TWC and/or Rachel’s reps (but they haven’t denied the rumors either).

The Weinstein Company and Hope Films in association with Richie Productions, Escape Artists, and Fuqua Films are now prepping to shoot the feature film Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, and Forest Whitaker. The casting directors have scheduled two open casting calls. One will be on Saturday May 24, 2014 in Indiana, Pennsylvania which is about 1-hour east of Pittsburgh. The second will be on May 31, 2014 in Pittsburgh. Film crew members can can submit resumes to the production office. Filming will take place in both Pittsburgh and Indiana from mid-June through early-August.

Southpaw centers on cocky, aggressive, volatile middleweight champion Billy Hope. He expects to ride out his career with his massive winnings, his adoring fans, his beloved wife Maureen and their 10 year old daughter Leila. When Billy’s temper triggers a fight, and then a shootout that leaves Maureen dead, Billy finds his life spiraling out of control. He takes to drinking and doing drugs, ignores the heart-broken Leila, and ignores his finances. When he loses his house, his money and finally Leila, who winds up in a group foster home, he begins to find his way back to some kind of balance with the help of amateur trainer Titus “Tick” Willis, who has his own demons but who turns out to be the perfect trainer for Billy.

It was reported earlier this week that Rachel is ‘top choice’ to play the female lead alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in “Southpaw“. It has not been confirmed yet that Rachel officially signed on but we will round-up some news about the movie in this post. Many thanks to my friends Jord & Nick for the heads-up!

• The Weinstein Company will distribute the movie in the US and they presented their upcoming slate yesterday during the 2014 Cannes Film Festival market and “Southpaw” was part of the in-production slate. Deadline, Variety, and Vulture are reporting that footage of Jake Gyllenhaal was showed.

Production Bulletin is reporting the following plot, keep in mind that it could contain (major?) spoilers:

Cocky, aggressive, volatile middleweight champion Billy Hope (Gyllenhaal) full expects to ride out his career with his massive winnings, his adoring fans, his beloved wife Maureen and their 10 year old daughter Leila. When Billy’s temper triggers a fight, and then a shootout that leaves Maureen dead, Billy finds his life spiraling out of control. He takes to drinking and doing drugs, ignores the heart-broken Leila, and ignores his finances. When he loses his house, his money and finally Leila, who winds up in a group foster home, he begins to find his way back to some kind of balance with the help of amateur trainer Titus “Tick” Willis, who has his own demons but who turns out to be the perfect trainer for Billy.

Indiana Gazette is reporting that there will be a casting call for extras held in the Indiana Mall for the movie. They also report that filming will start mid- to late June in Indiana and in Pittsburgh in early July to early August. Backstage.com confirms the July start date for Pittsburgh.

Deadline is reporting that Rachel is the top choice to play the female lead in “Southpaw” alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, Lupita Nyong’o and Forest Whitaker with Antoine Fuqua set to direct.

Southpaw, the long-gestating Kurt Sutter-scripted drama about a fighter who tries to overcome adversity to recapture glory, is finally getting close to the start line. I’m hearing that The Weinstein Company and director Antoine Fuqua have made Rachel McAdams their choice to play the female lead alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, with Forest Whitaker talks to play the boxing trainer who tries to guide his fighter back after his world is shattered by personal tragedy. It sends him on a downward spiral and puts his young daughter in a bad spot. I’m hearing TWC is courting 12 Years A Slave Oscar winner Lupita Nyong‘o to play the social worker watching out for the kid. Alan Riche and Peter Riche are producing with Todd Black and Jason Blumenthal. Fuqua has brought his Equalizer scribe Richard Wenk on for a rewrite.

Deadline previously reported that the movie is expected to start filming this summer.
