Livingston married to NL's 'Wife'


Ron Livingston has joined Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams in "The Time Traveler's Wife," New Line Cinema's adaptation of the Audrey Niffenegger novel being directed by Robert Schwentke. Plan B and Nick Wechsler are producing the picture.

The book tells the story of a dashing librarian (Bana) at Chicago's Newberry Library who has a gene that causes him to involuntarily time travel. He must help his wife cope with the many complications of his disorder as the two are often out of sync.

Livingston will play the man's friend, a liberal attorney who works for nonprofit organizations.

A September shoot in Toronto is being planned.

Jeremy Leven and Bruce Joel Rubin wrote the adaptation.

Overseeing for the studio are Richard Brener, Cale Boyter and Michele Weiss.

Livingston recently starred off-Broadway in the Neil LaBute play "In a Dark, Dark House." He starred in the TV series "Standoff" and next appears on the big screen in the fall in the indie film "The Music Within," in which he stars opposite Michael Sheen and Melissa George, as well as the indie drama "Holly," which was shot on location in Cambodia and has screened at several festivals.

Livingston is repped by Endeavor and Thruline.
