For all those who love Notting Hill and Rachel McAdams, get excited. The talented starlet has jumped aboard writer/director Richard Curtis‘ About Time, a “feel-good movie” about a man who has the ability to travel back in time. After what will presumably be time-travelling adventures, he meets his dream girl [THR].
The man will be played by Domhnall Gleeson, son of actor Brendan Gleeson. British regulars Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander, Margot Robbie, Lydia Wilson and Vanessa Kirby will co-star.
Curtis has become a staple in the romantic comedy genre (responsible for Bridget Jones’ Diary and Love Actually to name a couple), as has McAdams. In fact, one of her more recent semi-successful romantic vehicles is The Time Traveller’s Wife, which shares a premise eerily similar to Curtis’ new project.
Production is set to begin in London in June.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
