Rachel McAdams to star in Passion?

December 15th, 2011

Rachel McAdams is in talks to star in 'Passion'.

The 33-year-old actress may be starring alongside her fellow 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' beauty Noomi Rapace in the project, a remake of the French psycho-drama 'Crime d'Amour'.

Brian de Palma is directing the project, and is eyeing a start of March 5 in Berlin, according to blog Thompson on Hollywood.

The movie - originally starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier - tells the tale of an older executive who takes revenge on her protege.

Discussing the project, De Palma said he couldn't "wait" to get started.

He said: "Not since 'Dressed to Kill' have I had a chance to combine eroticism, suspense, mystery and murder into one spell-binding cinematic experience. I can't wait."

Rachel - who rose to fame after starring as bully Regina George in cult teen comedy 'Mean Girls' alongside Lindsay Lohan - this year starred in critically acclaimed Woody Allen movie 'Midnight in Paris' and will next year be seen in 'The Vow' with Channing Tatum.
