Rachel McAdams to Star in Film Adaptation of ‘Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret’

Rachel McAdams will be starring in the upcoming film adaptation of the beloved Judy Blume book, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret!

The 42-year-old actress will be playing the role of Margaret’s mother while Abby Ryder Forston has been cast as the title character, “a sixth-grade girl who is going through puberty and searches the universe for any answers she can find.”

The book was published in 1970 and Blume has not allowed a film adaptation to happen until now, according to Variety.

She said of the casting, “Abby is funny and tender, strong yet vulnerable. She IS Margaret. And Rachel — wow! — does it get any better? A funny, loving, sexy, real woman who is also a mom. I can’t wait to see these two playing mother and daughter. It all began with trusting [writer and director] Kelly Fremon Craig and [producer] James L. Brooks and they’ve proven how much this project means to them, which means everything to me.”

The movie will begin production in April!
