Rachel McAdams for The Time Travelers Wife?

mcadams_rachel_250.jpgI'm not an avid reader, I manage to find time to read about five or six books a year normally taking me a couple of months to read each one. This summer I read Audrey Niffeneger's book The Time Travelers Wife in 2 and half days, I could not put that book down. It was amazing and totally f*** with my emotions. TMZ are reporting what has been long time speculated that Rachel McAdams is in talks for one of the lead roles in the movie adaptation of the book. There is no doubt in my mind that Rachel McAdams is the best actress for the role of Clare BUT will audiences think that way after her role in The Notebook which many people might find similar. Like Naomi Watts for The Birds it screams of lazy casting but if they are the best people for the role then it's the right choice! Jeremy Leven who strangely enough wrote the screenplay for The Notebook is writing the script with TMZ also reporting that Stephen Frears (The Queen, High Fidelity) and Robert Schwentke (Flightplan) are the two top contenders to helm the flick. Yeah I could see Frears doing a good job with it, I loved what he did with Nick Hornby's High Fidelity although he did change several things but most were actually for the better (like changing the setting from UK to USA). Glad to see this project moving along as it seemed to be stuck in limbo for quite some time. I have my concerns on whether the book can be adapted into a movie and I suspect that several key aspects will have to be watered down but I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up cinematically.
