Well, now it's official: Rachel McAdams will play the title role in the film adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger's best-selling novel The Time Traveler's Wife, and Eric Bana will play her husband, the time traveler himself. The novel is about Henry and Claire, whose love withstands the fact that Henry sometimes leaps through time when he is stressed out.
I read this book — loved it — and find it difficult to imagine a film version, but with actors like these two, my fears have been allayed ... for now. I'm most apprehensive of how the time travel aspect itself will be handled, since there are so many ways to make that seem silly. The book was rather sophisticated about the whole thing, chalking up Henry's ability to a genetic disorder, not unlike Hiro's situation on "Heroes."
