Jake Gyllenhaal has had a really excellent run over these past few years, culminating in a career-best performance with Nightcrawler. But it’s not over. He seems poised to continue his winning streak with Southpaw, if the first trailer is any indication.
Directed by Antoine Fuqua and written by Kurt Sutter, Southpaw stars Gyllenhaal as a boxer who’s lost everything — up to and including his daughter, who’s been taken away by Child Services. He begins the painful process of putting his life back together the only way he knows how, by re-entering the ring.
Rachel McAdams plays his beautiful wife, Forest Whitaker his strict coach, and Oona Laurence his cute kid. Check out the Southpaw trailer after the jump. Read More »

Elisabeth Moss seemed pretty well suited to that True Detective Season 2 gig, not least because she pulled off a similar-sounding role to great acclaim in Top of the Lake. But just because she’s qualified doesn’t mean no one else is, and now it seems she has a little competition.
According to a new report, Rachel McAdams is in the running for the same True Detective Season 2 part that Moss has been circling for the past few weeks. Meanwhile, the other three leads — Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn — seem all but set. Get character details and more after the jump.

Tom McCarthy is recently wrapped a fanciful dramedy called The Cobbler, in which Adam Sandler plays a shoe repairman who walk in his customers’ shoes (in the metaphysical sense, not the boring literal one). But now the director is getting ready to head into much darker, heavier fare.
Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, and Stanley Tucci have entered talks to lead McCarthy’s Spotlight, about the Catholic Church’s child molestation scandal. Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, and Aaron Eckhart are circling other key roles. Hit the jump for all the details.

One of the very last films Philip Seymour Hoffman completed before his passing this past February was A Most Wanted Man, Anton Corbijn‘s adaptation of John le Carré‘s novel. The film premiered at Sundance this year to mostly (if not wildly) positive reviews, and is now heading toward a theatrical release this summer.
Hoffman leads the contemporary thriller as Günther Bachmann, a German spy looking for a half-Chechen, half-Russian immigrant (Grigoriy Dobrygin) with possible terrorist ties. The film looks checking out for many reasons, not least of which is the chance to hear Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, and Willem Dafoe try out their best German accents. Watch the first A Most Wanted Man trailer after the jump.

The sci-fi Passengers has an interesting, romantic/creepy premise: when one of 5000 deep-sleep colonists en route to a new world is accidentally awakened during the journey, he wakes another passenger, a woman, to keep him company. After years in development, the film is to be directed by Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire) with Keanu Reeves and Rachel McAdams starring. But Passengers just lost McAdams, and then the Weinsten Company bowed out.
Update: Focus Features is now in talks to pick up Passengers, says Variety, though a new co-star has not been found. But it has a home once again! Original article follows.

Anton Corbijn‘s third feature film, A Most Wanted Man, features Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, and Willem Dafoe in a story adapted from a novel by John le Carre (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). We’ve seen an early sales trailer for the film (which was sadly pulled) but until now the movie didn’t have any US distribution in place.
Now Lionsgate has stepped in to put the film in theaters. We don’t have a date for the studio’s plan at this point, but it’s good to know that there is a plan, or that there will shortly be one, at least. The film is about a Chechen-Russian immigrant, nearly penniless, who travels to Hamburg to claim an inheritance from his late father. But the source of his pop’s money is a little shady, and the US and German governments are watching. Hoffman plays a German security official who harbors serious suspicions about the situation.
We’ll post a new trailer as soon as one becomes available. With a studio on board, the next footage we see won’t be pulled from the internet. [Deadline]
