Rachel McAdams is well-known for her love of romance flicks, and her latest project was one of a different sort. Set aboard a spacecraft carrying 5,000 people to a new home, the futuristic movie stars Keanu Reeves and follows his character as he falls in love while simultaneously trying to save everyone on the ship. McAdams was set to play his love interest, but has reportedly dropped out. Now, the film is in jeopardy after being dropped by Weinstein Co.
Filming for “Passengers” was due to begin on April 7, but because of McAdams’ departure, production has been delayed for several weeks. “Game of Thrones” director Brian Kirk is reportedly on board to helm the film.
McAdams has reportedly got other things on her mind these days; according to a source at OK! Magazine, the actress has been trying hard to get back into ex Ryan Gosling’s life, even though he’s been seeing Eva Mendes for quite some time.
“[Rachel] has been very low-key about it all … She’s used the whole ‘just friends’ angle to get close to Ryan again,” the source said.
Mendes has been dodging rumors for months now that she and Gosling are in trouble, and also explained away a rumor claiming she was pregnant during an interview with Ellen.
“It’s so ridiculous. Because it all started because I was didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport,” Mendes recalled. “You know those x-ray scanners, which are really creepy. They basically see you naked, right. And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it, so I always opt out. I always ask for a personal pat down.”
