Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum take The Vow
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I’m actually a fan of Channing Tatum’s, but as I was watching DEAR JOHN, I got the feeling during the end confrontation scene with Amanda Seyfried that he couldn’t pull off the range of emotions needed for an emotional, romantic film. He’s out to prove me wrong as he’s going to be starring in the romantic tear-jerker THE VOW with Rachel McAdams. She herself is probably out to redeem herself in sappy romantic films after her turn in THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE. But the synopsis for THE VOW has both of them beat when it comes to tugging on the heart strings. It tells the true story of Kim and Krickitt Carpenter, a newlywed couple that experiences tragedy two weeks after they get married when Kim suffers permanent memory loss in a car accident. Krickitt spends the coming months getting his wife to fall in love with him all over again.
Are you okay? You didn’t already start tearing up did you? Okay, good. But I think we know what we’re in for when the film comes out. Michael Sucsy will be directing and touching up the script.
