Deadline reported earlier this that Alec Baldwin is in talks to join Bradley, Rachel Mcadams, Emma Stone and Danny McBride for the untitled Cameron Crowe/Hawaii/Deep Tiki project. It has been reported that Baldwin will play “a military man who oversees satellite launch”.
When I saw him in Cannes while he and Jim Toback were unveiling their hilarious documentary Seduced And Abandoned, Alec Baldwin made it clear that any roles he takes in the near future would have to square with his commitment to being a new dad. His wife Hilaria was close by, looking adorably pregnant. It looks like the Cameron Crowe-directed untitled film for Sony fits that bill because I hear that Baldwin is negotiating. Crowe and producer Scott Rudin have been discreet about the movie, but it looks like Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams and Danny McBride are all part of it. Look for Baldwin to lock his role shortly.
Bradley, Rachel and Emma were all spotted doing, presumably, pre-production work in Honolulu last week. The production is expected to start in September.
