New Line finds its cast on ‘Time’

Bana, McAdams to star in Schwentke film

New Line has set Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams as traveling companions in “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” the Robert Schwentke-directed adaptation of the bestselling Audrey Niffenegger novel.

Shooting’s set to start in August.

McAdams has long flirted with the project, about a Chicago librarian with a genetic disorder that causes him to time-travel when he is under duress. Though his disorder causes him to vanish for long periods, he tries to build a life with the woman he loves. She’s a young heiress struggling with the arrangement.

Pic is produced by Plan B’s Brad Pitt, Nick Wechsler and Dede Gardner. Jeremy Leven originally adapted it with Bruce Joel Rubin rewriting.

Because the book was a bestseller, the film has been a constant source of speculation since New Line acquired it in 2003.

McAdams last starred for New Line in “Wedding Crashers.”

Bana, who’ll next be seen onscreen opposite Drew Barrymore in the Curtis Hanson-directed “Lucky You,” recently wrapped “The Other Boleyn Girl,” the Columbia Pictures drama that co-stars Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson. It will be released Dec. 21.
