The Tracking Board is reporting that Rachel is in early talks to join the adaption of the graphic novel “Cold City” (originally titled “The Coldest City“). Director Daniel Espinosa is also in talks for the project.
Rachel McAdams has entered early talks to star in the upcoming Oni comic book adaptation COLD CITY.
The project, which is also in talks with director Daniel Espinosa (Easy Money, Safe House), centers on a young female MI6 agent who is sent undercover into Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow officer over a rumored list of double agents. McAdams would play the lead, with casting lists currently being prepped for the other leading roles.
Oni Comics’ production arm Closed on Mondays will produce the film. Their work includes “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” and a dozen or so in development projects including Universal’s “Resurrection” and recent “Young & Hungry” lister Paul J. Salamoff’s upcoming “The Last Breath”.
McAdams and Espinosa are both repped by UTA and Magnolia Entertainment.
It was previously reported that Rachel is also attached to star in “Maudie“. Filming for “A Most Wanted Man” kicked off yesterday in Hamburg (Germany). You can find the official plot description of “Cold City” after the jump.
BERLIN. NOVEMBER 1989.
Communism is collapsing, and soon both East and West will tear down the Berlin Wall.
But there is one last situation for MI6, Britain’s intelligence service, to resolve. Two weeks ago, an undercover MI6 officer was killed in Berlin. He was carrying information from a source in the East — a list that contains the name and details of every espionage officer in the city, on all sides.
But no list was found on his body.
MI6 sent Lorraine Broughton, an experienced spy with no ties to Berlin, to recover the list. But Lorraine walked into a powderkeg of social unrest, counter-espionage, defections gone bad, and secret assassinations. Then, on the night the Berlin Wall fell, her superior — MI6’s senior officer in the city — was shot dead in the street.
Now Lorraine has returned to London to tell her story. And nothing is what it seems.
oh, the director is swedish. i approve.
