The programmer’s note on “To The Wonder” was also released, you can find it after the jump.
John le Carré’s official website published an article which introduces the cast of “A Most Wanted Man” so far. Rachel and Philip Seymour Hoffman officially signed on to the movie and Robin Wright and Willem Dafoe are rumored to be in talks as additions to the cast.
As the excitement mounts for the upcoming film, read on to see who’s who in ‘A Most Wanted Man’…
Despite reports in Variety last week that both Willem Dafoe and Robin Wright were joining the project, much remains to be confirmed about the casting of le Carré’s ‘A Most Wanted Man’. All the signs though are that an extraordinary range of talent is coming together to work on the film.
Rachel McAdams’ acting work is just as varied. After her role as the manipulative Regina George in ‘Mean Girls’ for which she is justly lauded, McAdams has more recently had roles such as quick-thinking Lisa Reisert in ‘Red Eye’ and the cunning Irene Adler in the Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes films. We are sure she will bring both heart and intelligence to the role of lawyer Annabel Richter.
The line up for the 50th New York Film Festival was announced today and Brian de Palma’s “Passion” starring Rachel, Noomi Rapace and Karoline Herfurth is part of the festival’s line up. The movie is also selected for the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
Passion (Brian de Palma, France/Germany)
Brian De Palma brings great panache and a diabolical mastery of surprise to a classic tale of female competition and revenge. Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams are super-cool and oh so mean.
The festival runs from September 28 – October 14 and for more information head over to the official website. The official schedule will be announced later on.
I removed yesterday’s update on “A Most Wanted Man” on request, but I still wanted to point out the confirmed casting information published on John le Carré’s official website:
Robin Wright and Rachel McAdams reported to star together in forthcoming John le Carré adaptation.
Variety, among others, are reporting that Robin Wright is join the planned cast for the upcoming le Carré adaptation ‘A Most Wanted Man’.
It has been widely reported that Philip Seymour Hoffman has signed on, and been joined by Rachel McAdams, and with numerous agencies reporting this latest news it appears the cast list is really taking shape. Justin Kroll of Variety reports:
‘Robin Wright is in talks to star in a feature adaptation of the John le Carre tome “A Most Wanted Man.”
It seems like Rachel is still attached to the movie, and not replaced by Wright, like various media outlets are reporting. Variety published an article today in which they report that Willem Dafoe is in talks for the movie.
Filming for “A Most Wanted Man” is expected to start in September in Hamburg, Germany.
Rachel is one of the cover stars of Vs. Magazine’s Fall 2012 edition. Amanda Seyfried, Liv Tyler and Coco Rocha also have their own cover. Rachel’s cover is shot by Drew Barrymore. Fashionetc.com released a preview of all the covers, we added Rachel’s cover in our gallery. I assume Rachel is on the cover to promote her upcoming movies “To The Wonder” and “Passion“.
We hope more information, outtakes and the interview will be released soon.

Universal announced various release dates for their upcoming movies and “About Time” was one of them. It was announced that the movie will be released May 10, 2013 in the US. IMDB currently holds a March 22, 2013 release for the UK but I am not sure how reliable that is. The movie is currently filming it’s final shots in London. Rachel already wrapped up filming in Cornwall two weeks ago.
The studio also said that “About Time,” a new romantic comedy from “Love Actually” director Richard Curtis, will premiere on May 10, 2013. The film stars Rachel McAdams, Domhnall Gleeson, Tom Hollander and Bill Nighy.
“Passion” was just added to the line up of the Toronto International Film Festival as special presentation. It was previously announced that “To The Wonder” was also part of their selection. TIFF is from September 6 until September 16, and the official scheduale will be announced August 20. Both movies will have their world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
A new still and more detailed information was released via TIFF.net. I am really excited for this, because now Rachel has two films selected for two important film festivals! You can find the official press release and the info page written by Piers Handling (Director and Chief Executive Officer of TIFF) from the movie page below/inside.
“Passion” Brian De Palma, France/Germany North American Premiere
An erotic thriller in the tradition of Dressed To Kill and Basic Instinct, Brian de Palma’s Passion tells the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Christine possesses the natural elegance and casual ease associated with one who has a healthy relationship with money and power. Innocent, lovely and easily exploited, her admiring protégé, Isabelle, is full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing. They’re on the same team, after all… But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine’s lovers, war breaks out. Starring Rachel McAdams, Noomi Rapace, Karoline Herfurth and Paul Anderson.
phusis from the IMDB board posted this news a few weeks ago, but I forgot to update it on the main site. Now IndieWire article reminded me about it. Hanan Townshend was recently added as the “To The Wonder” composer on the IMDB page of the movie. He also worked with Terrence Malick on “The Tree Of Life”.
Malick has enlisted Hanan Townshend to score the upcoming movie, bringing in a relatively fresh face after working with folks like Alexandre Desplat, James Horner and Hans Zimmer on his last few films. However, Townshend was already very familiar with how Malick works. One of his pieces, “Eternal Pulse,” was featured in the soundtrack to “The Tree Of Life,” and he performed on a number of tunes as well, and clearly the director liked what he heard to bring him back. Of course, who knows what other pieces of music Malick might bring into the fray, but this is a big step up for Townshend who has largely worked on smaller, lesser known indie flicks until now.
If you are interested in Townshend’s work be sure to head over to his official website and listen to his composer reel. “To The Wonder” will premiere at Venice Film Festival on September 2 and is also selected for the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
The official schedule for the Venice Film Festival was announced earlier today. Both “To The Wonder” (directed by Terrence Malick) and “Passion” (directed by Brian de Palma) are selected for the festival as part of the official competition (Venezia 69). “To The Wonder” will have it’s world premiere September 2 and “Passion” on September 7. They will both have two screenings
September 2, 2012 – 7:30 p.m. SALA GRANDE & 8 p.m. PALABIENNALE
TO THE WONDER by Terrence Malick (USA, 112’, language: English, s/t Italian) cast: Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem
September 7, 2012 – 7:30 p.m. SALA GRANDE & 8 p.m. PALABIENNALE
PASSION by Brian De Palma (France, Germany, 100’, language: English, s/t Italian) cast: Rachel McAdams, Noomi Rapace, Paul Anderson, Karoline Herfurth
For more information on the festival be sure to visit the official website. We hope Rachel is able to attend both premieres. “To The Wonder” was also selected for the Toronto International Film Festival which begins September September 6. The official schedule for TIFF will be announced August 20.
We have some really nice goodies for you today. Kim kindly send us over some photos she took of Rachel during Rachel’s leaving party for “About Time” on July 25 in Cornwall. You can see photos of Rachel in a Kelly’s Whip car, she made ice creams for the crew and cast. Kim also posed with Rachel and her co-stars Bill Nighy and Domhnall Gleeson. Rachel wrapped up filming for the movie, and she was already spotted in Toronto and Los Angeles. “About Time” is expected to finish it’s production in mid-august.
“Passion” and “To The Wonder” were selected for for Venice Film Festival and “To The Wonder” was also selected for the Toronto International Film Festival so we hope Rachel will attend the festivals in August and September. She is also expected to start filming “A Most Wanted Man” in September in Hamburg (Germany) with director Anton Corbijn and co-star Philip Seymour Hoffman.
