Mimi Kennedy recently gave an interview with A Distinctive Style to talk about her work including “Midnight in Paris” and she gave us some new details about the movie itself.
This is what the interview reveals: Rachel plays the daughter of Mimi Kennedy’s character Helen and Kurt Fuller’s character. She is engaged to Owen Wilson’s character and he is a screenwriter. Rachel’s family is rich and they come from Manhattan (New York) and their story line takes place in the present. Owen Wilson’s character is the main character of this movie and he wants to be a novelist and enters the Parisian past while wondering through Paris by night. He meets the characters of Alison Pill and Marion Cotillard. By day he is back in the present. Wilson’s character is slightly based on Woody Allen himself.
From the earlier released plot line the relationship between Wilson’s character and Rachel’s is important. They are “forced to confront the illusion that a life different from their own is better“. You can read the full interview after the jump, be sure you do it’s worth the read and Mimi Kennedy also praises Rachel and her work. “Midnight in Paris” is set to open the film festival of Cannes 2011 on May 11th and will get a limited release in the US May 20th.
Update: “Midnight in Paris” now has an official facebook account. Be sure to “Like” the account.
Rachel was seen earlier this week taking off from LAX, we assumed to Toronto but she was seen back in Oklahoma to film scenes for the Untitled Terrence Malick Project. According to the IMDB board it’s for re-shoots and Mr. Malick is aiming for a Cannes 2012 premiere but you never know since he is always really secretive about his projects.
She was seen on multiple locations including filming in a OLC Global corporate headquarters. We added a fan photo of Rachel in Oklahoma and we also added a new fan photo taking while Rachel was visiting Ave Q.
Update: We are having some troubles with our gallery; it’s now solved but we have now a temporary version for our gallery. If I have the time I will make a new layout for it.

This is a reminder for the DVD/Blu-Ray release of “Morning Glory“. You can own it own it yourself as of today if you live in the US. We highly recommend this movie, since it’s truly Rachel’s movie; she carries the movie and just plays the character so bubbly and fun. The DVD/Blu-ray also contains a deleted scene and commentary of the director and writer.

The official website for “Midnight in Paris” is -somewhat- online. It’s not the full version, but a temporary version with the already released production still of Rachel with co-star Owen Wilson. We can probably expect the release of the full site and trailer within a few weeks. You can visit the official site over here.
Also the official site says: New York and Los Angeles May 20. We think the release day for the US, not sure it’s going to be a wide release date, is May 20 of this year. “Midnight in Paris” is the opening film for Film Festival Cannes of 2011 which is May 11th; I think it’s most likely Rachel will make an appearances and do promotion for the film. We also replaced the MQ still with a High Quality one, so be sure to check it out as well.

With the release of “Morning Glory” behind us and a few months until “Midnight in Paris” premieres at Cannes I thought I do a little bit of searching around for possible next projects for Rachel. The latest sighting of Rachel was in Ireland, and I think it’s safe to say the is enjoying her well deserved break since she almost worked non-stop last year on “Midnight in Paris“, “The Vow“, the still untitled Terrence Mallick project, promotion for “Morning Glory” and her cameo in “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows“.
• We reported a few months ago that Rachel was mentioned for the cast of “Welcome To People” alongside Chris Pine and Meryl Streep. Only Pine made it to the officially cast. She was also mentioned for “We Have Always Lived in the Castle” alongside Saoirse Ronan and Michael Douglas and “Oz: The Return to Emerald City” but no news or development status yet.
• Rachel was also mention for “You Are Here” directed by Matthew Weiner with Jack Black, Matt Dillon, Renée Zellweger and Rachel was offered a role. This project is still in development, no official cast has been announced.
• For almost two years now Rachel is mentioned in the involvement in “Ness“, the adaption of “Torso“. Last we heard it’s still not dead yet, but the studios still don’t gave it the green light (yet).
• Last March Rachel was mentioned as the female lead in “The Orphanage“. Mark Pellington revealed they didn’y find the female lead yet.
• Rachel is mentioned for a new project “Honeymoon With Harry” directed by Jonathan Demme alongside Bradley Cooper as Todd Cartwright (Co-star of “Wedding Crashers“) and Robert De Niro as Harry Everett. If this project is happening Rachel would be playing Haley Everett, daughter of De Niro. The plot line can be found below, the status of this project is in development as we speak.
A recovering self-destructive womanizer loses his fiancee in a car accident two days before their wedding and ends up going on his honeymoon with the fiancee’s father, who detests him, so they can scatter her ashes.
• Rachel is also mention for “A Little Something for Your Birthday” and she is attached to this project for over a year now. It’s directed by Michael Engler and so far only Rachel is mentioned in the cast. The status for this project is also in development.

Remember these projects are still in development, a lot can happen in only a second in film industry. Sometimes it takes years to get the green light, and if they get the green light it could happen Rachel is already filming a new project. But it’s nice to read she is -somewhat- attached to new projects. Big thanks to our visitor Daphne for the heads up, and all the information is coming from the New York Times/StudioSystems, which are reliable sources.
