Rachel McAdams Domhnall Gleeson About Time

Romantic comedy, time travel and Rachel McAdams -- they will all blend together in "About Time," with the first image arriving today.

Co-starring Domhnall Gleeson (who is great as the emotionally wounded, sensitive Levin in "Anna Karenina"), the film is the latest from "Love Actually" writer/director Richard Curtis that tells the story of a man who can time-travel and ends up meeting the girl of his dreams. Fun fact, Zooey Deschanel was circling the lead before McAdams came on, just as an fyi. And while both would have been fine, we like McAdams and just the hope the premise isn't as twee as it sounds. But Curtis does know his way around a twisty narrative, so maybe this will be the "Looper" of romance stories but without prosthetics? Mayhaps.

No release date for this one, but considering it shot this past summer, there's a good chance it will be released next year right around the same time. [Bleeding Cool]
