We’re hearing James McAvoy and Rachel McAdams are both the frontrunners for Relativity Media and Wayne Kramer’s upcoming sci-fi love tale ECSTASIA. The film, which is ambitious both in scope and idea, takes place in an alternate universe where love doesn’t exist, but can be artificially simulated through a very expensive procedure known as “commitment”, which implants both people with computer chips that link up. The story follows one couple as they struggle to make their monthly “commitment” payment, or forever be turned off, and lost to one another.
McAvoy, who was most recently seen in “X:Men: First Class” is currently in preproduction on “Welcome To the Punch”. McAdams, who was most recently seen in Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris” has four films set for release, including “The Vow” and the sequel to “Sherlock Holmes”.
