Rachel was photographed filming a scene for the still untitled Cameron Crowe/Hawaii Project early today in Hawaii. She was seen chatting with director Cameron Crowe and co-star Jay Baruchel was also photographed on set. We added the photos in our gallery but be aware that they could contain some possible spoilers about the plot! Many thanks to our friend Nicole for donating these again.
Rachel and the other cast and crew have been filming in Hawaii since late September and they will reportedly wrap production early December. The movie is expected to be released sometime in 2014.
Today is a very special day because Rachel is celebrating her 35th birthday. We want to wish her, on behalf of the site and the fans, a happy birthday! We hope she will have a fantastic day (on set?) celebrating with the people she loves. We wanted to celebrate Rachel’s birthday in a special way, so we added 35 brand new and unseen portraits of press conference and photoshoot outtakes in our gallery.
Many thanks to my friend Claudia for donating a few of these! Feel free to wish Rachel a happy birthday in the comments.
“I’m enjoying getting older. I am enjoying feeling comfortable in my skin. I’m enjoying the calm that comes with age. I feel like my life feels more and more open every day and that there’s more and more to look forward to all the time. I’m really enjoying the progress.”

The Box Office Mojo is reporting that The Weinstein Company set the release for “Passengers” to April 3, 2015. It was previously reported that they were aiming for a 2014 release. It has been reported that the movie will start filming late February/early March of next year in Germany and possibly Montreal. The script is written by Jon Spaihts and the movie will be directed by Brian Kirk. Keanu Reeves will star opposite Rachel.
THR is reporting that it was announced to (international) buyers that Rachel is confirmed to play the female lead in “Passengers” during the American Film Market. Director Brian Kirk is set to direct the movie and Jon Spaihts wrote the screenplay. Production is expected to start late February/early March in Germany next year and the aim is for a (late) 2014 release.
In May, distributors rushed to buy sci-fi epic Passengers when Witherspoon became attached to star opposite Keanu Reeves. The Weinstein Co. struck a multiterritory deal with Exclusive Media. But then Witherspoon dropped out. On the eve of AFM, it was announced that Rachel McAdams is now the female lead.
We should note that, like THR article mentions, Reese Witherspoon was attached and confirmed for the movie back in May at the Cannes market but later dropped out. Deadline broke the news that Rachel was in talks a few weeks ago and Rachel later confirmed herself the project was in talks/in the works. The production company Exclusive Media has a more in-depth plot description (with some possible spoilers!) of the movie on their official site.
On a colony ship carrying 5000 sleeping passengers to a new world, a malfunction awakens passenger Jim Preston (Reeves) ninety years too soon. Unable to get back into hibernation, Jim is doomed to live out his life alone on the massive ship.
After he’s tried every means to save himself, and exhausted the entertainments of the ship, Jim seeks solace among the hibernating passengers. There he sees the sleeping Aurora (McAdams), a beautiful writer whose books he finds in the ship’s library. Jim finds himself falling in love – and a terrible possibility presents itself: he could wake Aurora up.
We want to remind you that “About Time” is now playing in theaters nationwide in the US. The movie got a limited release last week. We highly recommend everyone to go see this movie.

Even more “About Time” interviews were released of Rachel during the Los Angeles press junket over the last few days and we added them all in our media archive. We also added a few new TV spots of the movie, which are all currently airing in the US. Two new production stills are added in our gallery and we also added the social media banners Universal released on the official facebook, instagram, pinterest, twitter, and tumblr account of the movie to promote the release because they feature some unseen stills.
We recommend everyone to watch her SheKnows interview, it’s a more in-depth one and definitely worth the watch! “About Time” is currently playing in selected theaters and will go nationwide this Friday (November 8th) in the US!
