So, what happens when you bring two Sparks alums, Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, together? More desperate romance, this time free of the Sparksian slant.
The Hollywood Reporter posts that McAdams and Tatum are going to star in a new romance called The Vow, which will have Michael Sucsy (Grey Gardens) directing. Based on a true story, the pair will star as a newlywed couple in New Mexico who get into a car crash. She's put in a coma, and when she awakens, she's lost all memory of her husband and their marriage, so he has to pitch the woo and try to win her love back again.
Apparently this love story has been in the works for a really long time -- over a decade -- and was once shaping up as a romance for Julia Roberts. Right now, McAdams has a few films that head into production this year, so best case scenario, The Vow won't get cooking until this winter, at the earliest.
Will the film make it out of development hell? And can McAdams find the same sparks with Tatum that she had with Gosling?
