Paramount Pictures has set Harrison Ford and is negotiating with Rachel McAdams to star in Morning Glory, a comedy that will be directed by Roger Michell, reports Variety. The Harrison Ford casting was first reported by MTV.
McAdams would play an aspiring news producer who tries to save a failing morning show by getting control of its feuding anchors. Ford will play one of the anchors, and the other will be set shortly.
Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) wrote the script.
J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk are producing for Abrams’ Bad Robot. Executive producers are Sherryl Clark and Guy Riedel.
