Scott Speedman Attempts to Break McAdams and Tatum’s ‘Vow’

With Rachel McAdams cast and the city of Toronto serving as the backdrop, the addition of Scott Speedman makes Michael Sucsy’s directing debut theatrical (he received a ton of praise for HBO’s Grey Gardens) an almost all “Canadian” affair.

Set to begin lensing next month after Sucsy completes a rewrite, The Vow tells the real-life story of a newlywed New Mexico couple, played by McAdams and Tatum, who end up in a car crash. The wife is put in a coma, where she is cared for by her devoted husband. When she comes to, without any memory of her husband or their marriage, the husband woos her and attempts to wins her heart again. Speedman represents the antagonistic forces — and will play McAdams’ former fiance, with whom she begins to rekindle a romance in her amnesiac state. Sort of sounds like a repeat for McAdams’ The Notebook love triangle, memory lapse triage rom drama.

Speedman will be at TIFF for the unveiling of Barney’s Version, and he is set to star in Mary Harron’s The Moth Diaries which begins shooting in Montreal shortly. Look for Screen Gems to distribute this around the same time next year.
