We came across another possible future project via The Tracking Board. The site posted an article on February 15, 2011 with the title “Rachel McAdams Set To Play Sexy Con-Woman To Matthew McConaughey’s Master Thief!“. The article is only available for subscribers, so can not access the full article but the title suggests that Rachel is possibly involved in a project with Matthew McConaughey called “Brilliant“.
We tried to find more sources that confirm this news, or even more information on this project but we did not find any so we are kind of doubting if it’s true. It will help a lot if we have the complete article, so if someone has a subscription to The Tracking Board please send us an e-mail. The Tracking Board recently reported about a possible involvement in “Ecstasia” with James McAvoy but no confirmation so far.
James McAvoy > Matthew McConaughey, just saying.
I’m a mcavoy fan, so saw your post in a google update. i subscribe to the tracking board. here’s what it says about the movie w/ mcconaughey:
Rachel McAdams is in early talks to star opposite Matthew McConaughey in the heist drama BRILLIANT. The film, which is being produced by Lakeshore Entertainment, from a recently rewritten script by Nicholas Kazan, centers on a master thief who is forced to pair up with a sexy young con artist in order to pull off a billion dollar diamond heist. With the new draft in place, producers are moving toward a mid-to-late 2011 start date, and if McAdams signs on, look for it to be soon.
