We came across a brand new picture of Rachel posing on set of “A Most Wanted Man” with co-star Willem Dafoe, producers Malte Grunert, Eva Hubert and Gail Egan and director Anton Corbijn. Rachel already wrapped up filming her scenes for the movie, and we expect that the production will finish this week or next week. Thanks to Frederik for donating the picture!
“A Most Wanted Man” is expected to hit theaters in the fall of 2013.
ABC Family will air a world exclusive special edition from “The Notebook” tonight (November 11) at 8/7c.

Rachel was seen filming a scene for “A Most Wanted Man” with co-stars Willem Dafoe and Grigoriy Dobrygin yesterday (October 19) in Hamburg. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jung Kostja Ullmann were also seen on set. The German site Bild.de published the exclusive story with a few on set photos. We added the two photos with Rachel in our gallery. The movie will continue to film im Hamburg until mid/late November.
We added a brand new still of “Passion” featuring Rachel in our gallery. The movie had it’s world premiere during the Venice Film Festival and got picked up by Entertainment One after hitting the TIFF market. It was recently announced that the movie will be part of the official competition at the 6th annual Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival and it will be the closing movie at the Ghent Film Festival in Belgium. Many thanks to Geoff for the heads up on the line-ups! “Passion” is expected to hit theaters next year.
In other movie news, the “About Time” script editor Emma Freud wrote on twitter yesterday that the movie had it’s first test screening for an audience in the UK. The movie will hit theaters March 22 next year in the UK followed by a May 10 release for the US.

We came across an article in the current issue of the industry magazine Film Journal International that mentions that Relativity Media is aiming for a September 2013 release for “A Most Wanted Man“. The movie began principal photography last month and is currently shooting in the St. Pauli area in Hamburg (Germany).
Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe and Robin Wright will star in A Most Wanted Man. Anton Corbijn (The American) will direct the modern spy thriller, which is adapted from a John le Carré novel. The story centers on a half-Russian, half-Chechen torture survivor who attepts to recover his father’s fortune with the help of a lawyer and Britisch banker. Hoffman would play the head of a German Spy unit who is trying to figure out if the man is telling the truth. Relativity has set a release date of Sept. 27, 2013
I haven’t found another source that confirms the release date, but it seems like this source is legit. The production company The Ink Factory announced that they will release the first official on set photos and/or production stills of the movie as soon as possible so be sure to ‘Like’ their official facebook page.
Paul from One Big Soul posted an interesting message on his facebook page about a (possible) release for Terrence Malick’s “To The Wonder“. The movie recently got picked up by Magnolia Pictures.
To the Wonder’s release date is spring TBD (to be determined). trailer Not until early next year.
-Danielle McCarthy, Magnolia Pictures
You can already ‘Like’ the official facebook page. “To the Wonder” had it’s world premiere during the Venice Film Festival and it’s North America premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival but if this message will turn out to be true we won’t be able to see it until spring next year.
Back in August we reported that Rachel was attached to star in the bio-picture “Maudie“, which tells the story of the late Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis. The movie hit the International Financing Forum (IFF), presented by Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC), during the Toronto International Film Festival in September to find funding.
The official OMDC news letter is reporting that “Maudie” is one of the 14 movies that found funding during the IFF. A total of $2.6 million was awarded to assist in the production and development financing of all 14 movies. The movie will be produced by Mary Young Leckie and Heather Haldane from Screen Door Inc. and will be directed by Jean-Francois Pouliot.
The press release didn’t confirm that Rachel is still attached to star, but I assume she is. The movie has been around since 2009, but it looks like it’s finally getting made with Rachel’s involvement. I came across another plot description of the movie:
Maudie is a coming of age story about a famous artist who learns to overcome her handicap and discover who she truly is through her art and an unlikely love interest.
The movie is expected to start principal photography next year. Be sure to read our previous post with more details about the plot in case you missed it.
