Deadline is reporting that Sony/Columbia/Regency has set a Christmas 2014 release for the still Untitled Cameron Crowe/Hawaii Project. Rachel stars alongside Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, and John Krasinski. The movie wrapped up filming last year in Hawaii.
Columbia Pictures and Regency Enterprises have marked out a December 25, 2014 release date for their untitled Cameron Crowe film, which stars Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin. Scott Rudin is producing with Crowe, who wrote and directed the romantic comedy. There’s still no title, but the plot centers on a defense contractor (Cooper) who falls for an Air Force pilot (Stone) after he is assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii.
The movie will be up against “Hot Tub Time Machine 2″, “Into the Woods”, and “Unbroken” according to Box Office Mojo.
We added more (press junket) interviews and two new portrait sessions of Rachel at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival to promote “A Most Wanted Man. Many thanks to my friends Carol and Amanda for their donations!
Deadline is reporting that Rachel signed with WME. She was previously with UTA and was repped by The Gersh Agency in the beginning of her career.
Rachel McAdams has signed with WME. The actress comes into the agency fold after starring most recently in the untitled Cameron Crowe film with Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper and Bill Murray, and after starring in the Anton Corbjin-directed A Most Wanted Man, the adaptation of the John Le Carre novel that stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Daniel Bruhl and Willem Dafoe. McAdams, who had been without an agent since leaving UTA last April, continues to be managed by Shelley Browning at Magnolia.
Let’s hope this also means Rachel will sign on to another project this year. Filming for “Every Thing Will Be Fine” is expected to wrap up this months. She is expected to start filming “Passengers” alongside Keanu Reeves in Berlin in April.
We want to remind you that “About Time” is available on DVD/Blu-Ray starting today in the US and since yesterday in the UK.

Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away on Sunday. We are still lost for words but we wanted to express how deeply saddened we are by this devastating news. We want to give our sincere condolences to his loved ones during this difficult time. Rachel attended the Sundance Film Festival premiere of “A Most Wanted Man” two weeks alongside director Anton Corbijn and co-stars Willem Dafoe and Philip Seymour Hoffman and named him her favorite actor back in 2009. The movie completed production and is expected to be released in theaters sometime this year.
ABC News has Corbijn’s official statement:
“He was not only the most gifted actor I ever worked with (and judging by the legacy he leaves behind I am certain I share this with most if not all directors who were fortunate enough to work with him), he had also become an incredibly inspiring and supportive friend. I am so terribly sad as I find it impossible to comprehend what happened today and to collect my thoughts properly. I have to think about Mimi and the children and I wish them much strength coping with the loss of this truly great man as a father and partner.” — Director Anton Corbijn in a statement. Hoffman stars in Corbijn’s film “A Most Wanted Man,” which premiered earlier this month at the Sundance Film Festival.
Before Rachel made her feature film debut she appeared in a few television series and TV movies. We added the screencaptures of the promotional trailer of the MTV pilot Rachel shot titled “Shotgun Love Dolls“. The actual pilot never aired. We also added the screencaptures of Rachel’s guest spot in the Disney series “The Famous Jett Jackson” which aired in 2001.

THR is reporting that “Passengers” will be filmed at the Studio Babelsberg and will be part of the Berlin Film Festival market for the international buyers in February. It has been reported before that the movie will start filming in April.
Keanu Reeves’ much-hyped upcoming sci-fi feature Passengers has landed at Germany’s Studio Babelsberg.
The big-budget space romance – which features Reeves and Rachel McAdams as a futuristic “Adam and Eve” – is deep into pre-production. It is scheduled to begin shooting at Babelsberg, just outside Berlin, this spring.
The plot has Reeves as space colonist Jim Preston, on board a colony ship carrying 5,000 sleeping passengers to a new world, who accidentally awakens. Lonely, he wakes up Aurora (McAdams), and they fall in love. They eventually realize it is up to them to save the entire ship.
Developed by Reeves and Stephen Hamel at their Company Films, the script was written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). The film will be the feature directing debut of Irish TV director Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire). Passengers has already received $1.35 million (€1 million) in financing from German state subsidy agency Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.
The Weinstein Company has picked up Passengers for a U.S. release. Exclusive Media is handling international sales. Exclusive first presented the project to buyers in Cannes last year and will be pushing sales at Berlin’s European Film Market, which kicks off Thursday.
The Weinstein Company has set the US release date for April 3, 2015.
