Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams to Play the Time Traveler and His Wife

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."

I looooooooved the book and am looking forward to seeing this movie... I always kinda envisioned somebody like Rachel for Claire so I'm already quite excited! Hopefully the adaption will be better than the da vinci code though. That was such a disappointment.

I love this book! I am excited, but nervous, at the idea of the movie. I love Rachel McAdams though and Eric Bana, so maybe it will be really good!

Kitty - wow another book that makes people cry? I cried so much during the Notebook - both book and movie. I rewatched the movie today - cried even more. Lol. Rachel McAdams goes for a lot of book-turned-movies, especially the tearjerker ones.

Whooooooo. :love: Rachel.. she's been saying she only wants to do movies that really "mean something" for awhile now.. I wouldn't imagine she'd sign on if it wasn't going to be amazing.

I have the book on a huge pile of books to read - I guess I'll have to move it to the top and read it before the film comes out.

I was waiting for them to cast/ confirm these roles... great choices, now I'm really looking forward to the movie, although, I too wonder how they'll adapt this.

i LOVED THIS BOOK. I was really happy to hear about Rachel - she's been connected to this for a while, but I'm apprehensive w/ Bana. He was pretty good in Munich... I think I'm too emotionally invested in the book - I hope the movie does it justice!
