We added lots of additional photos of Rachel attending last night’s “Passion” premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival, including lots of high quality ones. But we expect more additions, also from the “To The Wonder“, the next few days so keep checking back.
For all the fans from Canada, be sure to tune in tonight at Entertainment Tonight Canada, they announced they will air an exclusive interview with Rachel which took place yesterday while she was promoting her movies at the Variety Studio.
We assume Rachel is now done with her TIFF promotional duties, and she will probably prepare to head to Hamburg (Germany) to start filming “A Most Wanted Man“. The filming will kick off next week on September 19.

John le Carré official facebook group recently released the first photos of le Carré doing pre-production work with Corbijn and the producers.
The major thriller espionage feature film “A Most Wanted Man – Marionette” is set to begin shooting on September 19th in Hamburg, Germany. The production is casting local actors and numerous extras to work on the film, which is based on the novel “A Most Wanted Man” by British author John le Carré. The novel is loosely based on the true War on Terror story of Murat Kurnaz. Especially needed by the extras casting director is a large group of male Turks and Arabs. However, many different types and ages, any ethnicity, will be needed throughout filming which will run from September 19th through November 23, 2012. Casting for the film’s lead and supporting roles have taken place in London and Berlin.

The first reviews of Brian de Palma’s “Passion” are appearing online. The movie had it’s world premiere earlier today during the Venice Film Festival. Rachel did not attend the premiere, but her co-star Noomi Rapace did. We will add the reviews focused on Rachel in this post, so keep checking back for more.
The movie will have it’s North America premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next week (September 11). Rachel is expected to attend the festival, so I am hoping she will do promotion for the movie.
Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams star as members of a Berlin ad agency, and the casting is pleasingly against type. McAdams’ character – blonde, sapphic, possibly sick in the head – is Christine, a company highflyer who dresses like Grace Kelly but does business like Gordon Gekko. She’s working her way to the top of the corporate ladder off the sweat of her unassuming coworker Isabelle (Rapace): “You have talent. I made the best use of it,” the ice-queen boss tells her mousy underling after taking credit for her latest presentation. The characters are little more than noir cyphers, but both actors are game and have fun taking turns at playing femme fatale as they cross and doublecross each other throughout the increasingly convoluted narrative.
Great news, the Hollywood Reporter is reporting that “A Most Wanted Man” found another financer and production company. The article also confirm that Rachel, Hoffman, Dafoe and Wright are all cast in the movie.
It was reported earlier that the filming for the movie is expected to start in September in Germany.
Based on John le Carre’s bestselling book, the modern-day spy thriller stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Rachel McAdams.
TORONTO — New financing and production venture Demarest Films has come aboard to co-finance and co-produce Anton Corbijn’s espionage saga A Most Wanted Man, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe and Robin Wright.
A Most Wanted Man is based on John le Carre’s acclaimed novel of the same name. Screenwriter Andrew Bovell adapted for the big screen.
The spy thriller is set in present-day Hamburg, Germany, where a mysterious half-Chechen, half-Russian man, brutally scarred from torture, surfaces in the city’s Islamic community, on the run and desperate for help. He seeks to recover his late Russian father’s fortune and soon connects with a conflicted British private banker and a young female lawyer fiercely determined to protect the rights of persecuted émigrés.
The press kit for “Passion” was released via the production compagnies website. It also features in interesting and in-depth interview with director Brian de Palma. Thanks to tempjord for the heads up! You can read it below/inside, but be aware that it contains some major spoilers especially when you haven’t seen the original so don’t read further if you don’t want to get spoiled.
I high lighted the parts interesting to Rachel and her character Christine in italic. You can also see the scans of the Italian magazine FilmTV in our gallery, it features an article on “Passion“. The movie will have it’s world premiere at the Venice Film Festival tomorrow, and will have it’s North America premiere at TIFF next week.
How would you pitch the story?
It is a struggle for power between women and a murder mystery.
What attracted you to the story?
The fact that it is a thriller, the best genre for visual storytelling, with a certain element of fun to it. And a genre that I haven’t done since “Raising Caine”, 22 years ago. I liked the characters in the Alain Corneau film but I thought of a different way to reveal the murder. I rewrote the script so that there were constant surprises, many possible suspects and you did not know for sure who was the murderer. I also worked out quite a few tricks to make the audience believe one thing when something else happens.
