COMING SOON – ComingSoon.net has your first look at an exclusive clip from Fox Searchlight‘s upcoming drama My Cousin Rachel, starring Oscar winner Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener, The Lobster, The Light Between Oceans). Check out the My Cousin Rachel clip in the player below!
A dark and layered romance, My Cousin Rachel tells the story of a young Englishman who plots revenge against his mysterious and beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. His feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling helplessly and obsessively in love with her.
Weisz is joined in the film by Sam Claflin (Me Before You, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2), Holliday Grainger (Cinderella, The Borgias), Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter), and Pierfrancesco Favino (Marco Polo, Night at the Museum).
Based on the novel by Daphne Du Maurier novel, the film is directed and written by Roger Michell (Hyde Park on Hudson, Notting Hill, Morning Glory). The film opens in theaters on June 9, 2017.
WOMEN’S HEALTH – Confession: We’ve been low-key crushing on Sam Claflin, 30, Brit, unabashed romantic, and star of My Cousin Rachel (out June 9th) since he played Finnick in Hunger Games: Catching Fire. And when we saw him in Me Before You, well, we pretty much fell in love.
Only one problem though, the guy is happily married and a dad, so we’ll just keep that fantasy to ourselves for now. In the meantime, we caught up with Sam to chat about his relationship with his wife, his biggest insecurities, and what cracks him up. Behold:
IF YOU HAD A MONTH OFF, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
Does my wife [British actress Laura Haddock] have a month off as well? I want to be with my wife, I want to be with my baby, I want to see my friends, I want to see my family, and I also want to be in Hawaii. That’s my happy place. With nothing to read and nothing to do.
DO YOU THINK S.O.’S SHOULD BE BEST FRIENDS?
Yeah. I mean, look, when I go to the pub to have a couple of drinks and watch football with my buddies, my wife doesn’t necessarily have to come with me and sit through a match. But of course she’s my best friend. She is someone who knows everything about me, and I couldn’t love someone I didn’t love as a best friend. You have to have that bond for it to work. It goes hand in hand.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR HANGUPS?
I’m very insecure about my body. Hollywood has an ideal body with a six-pack and pecs, and that’s a lifestyle that’s just not sustainable for me. I want to be a happy married man and a really good dad who gives time to his kids. I don’t want to be spending hours in the gym. A lot of men are as insecure about themselves as women are, but it’s not as much shone a light on. There’s a sense that you’re not allowed to talk about it as a bloke, but it shouldn’t be that way. (The Slim, Sexy, Strong Workout DVD is the fast, flexible workout you’ve been waiting for!)
WHAT DO YOU THINK MASCULINITY MEANS TODAY?
Men through history have been persuaded to think that you have to be manly and brave and strong and the backbone of the family. And that’s changing now. As women are taking a much more equal standpoint in terms of the careers and opportunities that men have always allowed themselves, a lot of men have realized they don’t have to live up to all that anymore and the world’s perception of men has changed.
So I think men are starting to open up more and show love more. Since having my little boy, I definitely have. There’s another layer of love you never knew existed, and I’ve become more sensitive to other people and situations and the world, I guess. For example, I’ve been a stay-at-home dad when my wife’s been working, and I’ve loved nothing more than that. But I think a lot of men do still feel uncomfortable if their wife were to earn more money than them, and they are still clinging to the way it used to be. But they shouldn’t feel like that. Once we allow ourselves to just be and live and change, we’ll be better off.

VARIETY – “Me Before You” and “Hunger Games” star Sam Claflin is in negotiations to join Shailene Woodley in STX Entertaiment’s survival drama “Adrift,” sources tell Variety.
Miles Teller was initially in talks to reunite with his “Divergent” and “Spectacular Now” co-star in the movie, but passed on the project due to scheduling conflicts.
“Adrift” is written and produced by Aaron and Jordan Kandell. Baltasar Kormákur will direct and produce the film under his RVK Studios banner, with production set to begin in June.
Woodley signed on to star in “Adrift” during the Berlin Film Festival, where STX began selling rights.
“Adrift” is based on the true story of Tami Oldham, who, after being knocked unconscious by the largest hurricane in the history of the Pacific Ocean, awakens to find her fiancé Richard Sharp badly injured, their boat in ruins, and no means of communication or navigation. She must race against the clock to save herself and the only man she’s ever loved.
Claflin recently wrapped production on the Jennifer Kent thriller “Nightingale” for Bron Studios, and can be seen next in Fox Searchlight’s “My Cousin Rachel.” He is repped by CAA and Independent Talent Group.
