Rachel McAdams (The Vow) is reportedly in talks to join the untitled picture from writer/director Cameron Crowe (We Bought a Zoo).  Not much is known about the project at the moment, but it already stars Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) and Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man).  McAdams is expected to play a former lover of Cooper’s character in the rom-com, which may actually clue us in as to which re-worked former project this untitled picture is based on. Production on the film is expected to start this October.  Hit the jump for more.

rachel-mcadams-cameron-crowe-movieDeadline reports that McAdams is in talk to join the untitled picture.  It may in fact be a heavily reworked version of a project formerly titled Deep Tiki.  The previous version of the story followed a disgraced military weapons consultant who is stationed at a dormant base in Hawaii to supervise the launching of a spy satellite.  Set against the tropical island landscape, he begins to discover both himself and the relationships he left behind through a combination of island lore and Cold War-era diplomacy.  At one point it was said to involve visions of Hawaiian Gods and sacrifices to the volcano, so we’ll see how much it changes once it hits the screen.

Update: According to THR, the premise of the untitled film centers on “a defense contractor (Cooper) who is overseeing a weapons satellite launch from Hawaii teams up with (and falls for) an Air Force pilot (Stone) to scuttle the launch. Mystical island forces and a talking a computer also play a part.”  It looks like more of the original Deep Tiki might have stayed intact than I had predicted.

McAdams, meanwhile, will be seen in Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder with Ben Affleck; that film opens this weekend in the U.S.  She also recently wrapped on About Time, a sci-fi dramedy from writer/director Richard Curtis due out November 8th, and the Anton Corbijn thriller A Most Wanted Man, also starring Robin Wright, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Willem Dafoe.
