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.”

We have added new additional videos of “A Most Wanted Man” in our media archive including new movie clips and a making of. We also added new production stills, a new official on set still and additional social media banners in our gallery.
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!
Rachel and her sister Kayleen Mcadams appeared on TLC’s Who Do You Think You Are? earlier this month. We finally managed to add the full episode in our media archive. We have split it in multiple parts. The episode is still available On Demand on Amazon.com or Itunes and on TLC.com. We have also added the official recap of the episode in our gallery.
Official Description: Rachel and Kayleen McAdams discover an English ancestor surrounded by a privileged world, but forced to separate from those he loved; they uncover the harrowing circumstances behind their Canadian roots.
We officially finished moving our video archive and we are very proud to announce that we now have over 710 videos of Rachel throughout her career. Moving the archive took way longer then we expected and we wanted to apologize again for the inconvenience. It was a lot of work to re-add all the videos collected over the years but it was worth it in the end. We now have hours of video footage for you to watch and enjoy so be sure to head over to media.rachelmcadams.org and check it out. We have added some recent videos in our archive that we forgot to add before.
We are always looking for missing videos and footage so be sure to drop us a line if you came across a missing video or want to donate one. We are especially looking for videos from early on in Rachel’s career.
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

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!
We managed to find even more additional high quality photos of Rachel during the “A Most Wanted Man” premiere in New York City last month. So over 70 additional photos have been added to our gallery. We also forgot to mention that we have added red carpet interviews in our press archive.
The movie is still playing in theaters nationwide in the US.
