Rachel Eyed for “Ecstasia” with James McAvoy

The Tracking Board posted an article about the possibility of Rachel and James McAvoy starring in the upcoming drama “Ecstasia“, written and directed by Wayne Kramer. The article is only accessible for subscribers of the site, but thanks to a James McAvoy forum we have the article.

We’re hearing James McAvoy and Rachel McAdams are both the frontrunners for Relativity Media and Wayne Kramer’s upcoming sci-fi love tale ECSTASIA. The film, which is ambitious both in scope and idea, takes place in an alternate universe where love doesn’t exist, but can be artificially simulated through a very expensive procedure known as “commitment”, which implants both people with computer chips that link up. The story follows one couple as they struggle to make their monthly “commitment” payment, or forever be turned off, and lost to one another.

McAvoy, who was most recently seen in “X:Men: First Class” is currently in preproduction on “Welcome To the Punch”. McAdams, who was most recently seen in Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris” has four films set for release, including “The Vow” and the sequel to “Sherlock Holmes”.

The story centers on a time in the future when love only exists through artificial creation at a high price, through a procedure simply known as “commitment,” and follows a couple who goes to desperate measures to try to afford the high price of love.


We reported earlier Rachel is also considered for the upcoming “Luna” project from Doug Liman, but no official cast is announced as of yet. You can read the full list of in development projects over here. Keep in mind no official future project is confirmed for Rachel as of yet, but it’s good to know she is still considered for a bunch of project.
