Bana traveling with McAdams for NL's 'Wife'
EmptyEric Bana and Rachel McAdams will be time-challenged lovers in "The Time Traveler's Wife," New Line Cinema's adaptation of the Audrey Niffenegger novel being directed by Robert Schwentke (HR 4/18).
Plan B and Nick Wechsler are producing the picture, for which McAdams is in final negotiations to star and Bana already is signed on.
More a love story than a fantasy, the book tells the tale of a dashing librarian (Bana) at Chicago's Newberry Library who has a gene that causes him to involuntarily time-travel forward and backward.
During one of his episodes, he falls in love with a character played by McAdams.
