Waiting for Forever tells the story of Will Donner (Tom Sturridge), a charismatic and carefree young man who has chosen not to follow the more traditional path of a career, in favor of the pursuit of the love he has for his childhood best friend, Emma Twist (Rachel Bilson). Will and Emma have not seen each other since they were kids, but that has not lessened his feelings for her, in any way. His quest to reconnect with her has taken him on a journey from city to city, where he always attempts to engage in conversation with her, but becomes paralyzed at the thought. Once the two finally do reunite, what initially seems a bit obsessive soon leads them both down a path of self-realization.
During the film’s press day, co-stars Rachel Bilson and Tom Sturridge talked about this unique love story, relating to their characters, learning to juggle, and the importance of childhood friends who help get you through the tough times. They also talked about their upcoming roles – Tom is in On the Road, opposite Kristen Stewart and Sam Riley, and Rachel just finished the comedy BFF & Baby, opposite Kate Bosworth and Krysten Ritter. Check out what they had to say after the jump:

Last we heard, Cameron said they were “very very actively” pre-producing the R-rated 3D epic based on HP Lovcraft’s novella. Universal had their sights set on James McAvoy to star, but del Toro was set on Tom Cruise. Well, it looks like del Toro may get his wish. Cameron recently had this to say in an interview with MTV:
“Tom [Cruise] wants to do the picture. I don’t think we have a deal with him yet, but we’re hoping to get that closed soon. Guillermo is madly working on a new draft of the script. Hopefully we’ll be shooting by June or July.”So it sounds like things are moving right along. The film will be shot in 3D and tells the story of a doomed expedition to Antarctica where “fantastic and horrific ruins and a dangerous secret beyond a range of mountains taller than the Himalayas” are discovered. In short, it’s the perfect project for del Toro and Cameron to team up on. For all of our previous coverage on the long-gestating At the Mountains of Madness, click here.
