Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana, now your look at has ended. The Time Traveler’s Spouse has a new time traveler and his titular wife.

Steven Moffat’s adaptation of The Time Traveler’s Spouse was announced back again in 2018, but we are all unstuck in time these days, so we’re just now finding casting news. Rose Leslie and Theo James will engage in the lead roles in Moffat’s series for HBO primarily based on the e book by Audrey Niffenegger (entertaining truth: she co-established the Centre for Ebook and Paper Arts at Columbia University Chicago shout out to my fellow Colum Alums).

The reserve was 1st tailored in 2009 and starred McAdams and Bana, but the reception was blended at most effective. Here’s hoping the showrunner who gave us a further time traveler’s wife fares superior, although Moffat is swift to downplay the similarities amongst the two properties.

“Although I happily riffed on The Time Traveler’s Wife a few of occasions in Doctor Who with ‘Lady in the Fireplace’ and River Song, actually time journey is a difficulty to the characters in Time Traveler’s Wife,” he informed Radio Occasions past yr. “They really do not want to be in that movie.
