For a while now, Richard Curtis has been working on his next directorial venture, a time-travel comedy called About Time. A few weeks ago Zooey Dechanel was in talks for the female lead, but it seems she’s moved on, as THR reports that Rachel McAdams is now in discussions to take on the role.
Domhnall Gleeson is set to play a young man who discovers he has the ability to travel back in time. While this might sound like a rather cool power, but it begins to cause more trouble than it’s worth when he meets the woman of his dreams (McAdams). Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander, Lydia Wilson and Vanessa Kirby are also set to star.
You’d have thought McAdams might have had enough of temporally problematic lovers in The Tim Traveller’s Wife, but if things pan out, she’ll shoot About Time this summer.
