Rachel McAdams? Nice Work, Ira.


Apparently, the disappointing box-office showing for his Sundance Film Festival winning Forty Shades of Blue hasn’t slowed down Memphis-bred filmmaker Ira Sachs. According to Variety, Sachs has put together an impressive cast for his next film, including Chris Cooper, Pierce Brosnan, Patricia Clarkson, and Rachel McAdams.

Sachs told the Flyer last year that the film, titled Marriage, is a period piece, set in the 1940s, about a man who decides to kill his wife. Sachs likened the film to great Edward G. Robinson dramas from the 1930s such as Scarlet Street and The Woman in the Window.Variety reports production on the film is set to begin in July. No shooting location is mentioned, but Sachs said last year that Memphis wouldn’t be a good fit for the San Francisco-set film. For more, go here.
