Rachel McAdams set for "Marriage'

Rachel McAdams has put an end to all the Internet and tabloid rumours. There will be a wedding this summer ... or, at least, a marriage. In an interview with 24 hours Thursday, the St. Thomas native revealed her highly anticipated next project would be Marriage, Ira Sachs' follow-up to Forty Shades of Blue, his 2005 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury prize-winning film. "It's a murder romance," said McAdams. "A guy decides to kill his wife. It's with Chris Cooper and I play the other woman." According to McAdams, an actor has yet to sign on for the role of the wife. The 29-year old star of the holiday dramedy The Family Stone, released this week on DVD, praised her Oscar-winning co-star and her gifted director. "I think he [Cooper] is one of the better actors working and Ira Sachs is a great director," said McAdams. Cooper won the 2002 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for Adaptation. Marriage is set to begin filming in July "somewhere in Canada," says McAdams. Fans of the Central Elgin Collegiate Institute graduate have been waiting a long time for McAdams' next movie - The Family Stone was released in theatres on Dec. 16, 2005. "I just wanted to refuel. I wanted to take a look at my life and my career," explained McAdams. "I wanted to take a little longer in deciding what I wanted to work on next." And who could blame her? 2005 belonged to McAdams. Dubbed Hollywood's next "It" girl by everyone from Entertainment Weekly to Newsweek last year, McAdams picked up three MTV Movie awards for her 2004 breakout roles in The Notebook (best kiss) and Mean Girls (breakthrough female and best on-screen team) and has since been nominated for another this year, Best Performance, for the 2005 Wes Craven thriller Red Eye. Her other hit of last summer, Wedding Crashers, with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, is up for best movie. "It's very flattering to be recognized by your peers in that demographic," said McAdams. "The MTV Movie Awards are voted on by the people who are actually watching the movies, not by the people who decide who is going to win awards." Having worked on The Family Stone with Luke Wilson, McAdams has now shared the screen with both of the Texas-born Wilson brothers - central players, along with Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell and Jack Black, in this generation's version of the Rat Pack, the Frat Pack. So who's funnier? "They are both very funny and obviously very talented," Mc-Adams said, with a laugh. "They have an older brother, Andrew, who is a very talented director and is very funny, as well. I had more fun on The Family Stone and Wedding Crashers than any other films that I have worked on and Luke and Owen were a big part of that." [24Hours]
