The Toronto International Film Festival released the first teaser trailer for “Passion” on their official website. The movie – directed by Brian de Palma – stars Rachel and Noomi Rapace. You can watch the trailer in our media archive and the high definition screen captures can be found in our gallery. It’s the first time Rachel done anything like this, so I am excited!
The movie will have it’s world premiere September 7 at the Venice Film Festival and will premiere at TIFF a few days later. It’s still looking for a US distributor, so no release date has been set so far.
“About Time” officially wrapped up filming today. Emma Freud (script editor) send out a message on her official twitter page. The movie is written and directed by Richard Curtis and stars Rachel, Domhnall Gleeson, Bill Nighy and many more.

The movie shot on location in London and Cornwall over the past few weeks and they also shot in the Ealing Studios in London. Rachel already finished filming her scenes almost a month ago. The movie is confirmed to release May 10, 2013 in the USA and is rumored to release March 22, 2013 in the UK.
Rachel has busy months a head of her. She is expected to attend Venice Film Festival next week and she is also confirmed to attend the Toronto International film festival. “A Most Wanted Man” will start filming in Germany in September as well (JohnLeCarre.com – the Author’s official website – introduced the cast/crew of the movie so far today). Keep an eye on our ‘Important Dates’ section in the sidebar for the exact dates and events!
The Toronto International Film Festival just released their official film schedule for this year’s festival.

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.
