Rachel McAdams will play Margaret Simon’s mother’s role in the upcoming movie adaptation of Judy Blume’s novel, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. The actress signed on to star in the upcoming movie as the main character’s mother, Barbara Simon.

Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret was published in 1970 and has become Judy Blume’s most popular and beloved book. The book centers around Margaret Simon, a sixth-grader who has a ton of questions in this coming-of-age story.

Rachel McAdams has starred in several movie adaptations, including The Notebook, based on the Nicholas Sparks novel. She also played one of the leading roles in Mean Girls, a film based on Rosalind Wiseman’s self-help book Queen Bees and Wannabees.

The film producers also cast Abby Ryder Fortson as Margaret Simon, the 12-year-old best known for her role in the Ant-Man film series and has starred in the HBO series Togetherness.

Production is set to start this April, and Blume is confident the movie will stay true to the book. The author resisted turning her book into a movie for over 50 years but signed over the rights to producer James L. Brooks’ production company Gracie Films in 2018. Over the last few years, the team worked on a screenplay and now the casting decision.

Casting directors are now casting extras to work on the upcoming Rachel McAdams feature film. Check out the latest casting call breakdowns below.
