Rachel McAdams in talks for 'About Time'

The princess of romantic comedies, Rachel McAdams, is at it again.

This time, “The Notebook” actress is in negotiations to star in the romantic comedy “About Time,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

It’s the latest from British filmmaker Richard Curtis, who wrote “Love Actually” and “Bridget Jones’s Diary.”

The script is about a man with the ability to travel back in time and winds up meeting McAdams' potential character, the “girl of his dreams.”

According to reports, "Harry Potter" actor Domhnall Gleeson (son of actor Brendan Gleeson), will play the leading man. Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander, Margot Robbie, Lydia Wilson and Vanessa Kirby are also attached to the project.

It's been rumored that if McAdams signs on, she'll be replacing Zooey Deschanel.

Filming for “About Time” is expected to start next month in London, and the “Midnight in Paris” actress is also expected to shoot the thriller “Most Wanted Man” in September.

    Adapted to screen from the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name, The Notebook is one of the best romantic dramas to hit the big screen in decades. Garnering high marks from a wide-range of critics, The Notebook is a funny and emotional film which deals with love, relationships, and the risks people take. James Garner turns in a notable performance as the elder man, Duke, who reads the pages of his notebook to dying nursing home resident Allie (Gena Rowlands). Overall, this is a classic “chick flick” with a dramatic twist. Set in the World War II era, The Notebook is a great film…*

    I think that Rachel McAdams would do better for this piece, in fact, almost a reprise of the Time Travellers Wife role. Zooey Deschannel, while a good comedic actress and a fine voice on She and Him albums, does not have any sort of dramatic chops, with credits like "Big Trouble" and "Handbook to the Galaxy" films as her dramatic depth. Even 500 Days of Summer finds her very aloof and even emotionally distant. "Coal Miner's Daughter" seems more Zooey's forte with her singing background. Keep Zooey on Broadway and leave Rachel to carry the sappy comedies she does well.
