Is it just us, or are there like four million movies featuring the word “fields” in their titles lately? In any event only one of those films is home to actor Robert De Niro, and that’s the one we’re most interested in!
According to The Hollywood Reporter Anna Friel is in negotiations to join the cast of The Dark Fields, Neil Burger’s thriller for Relativity Media starring Bradley Cooper.
If cast, Friel will play Cooper’s ex-wife, a woman who was a go-getter before their break-up. Elizabeth Banks co-stars along with Abbie Cornish. Look for the flick to hit theatres nationwide on March 18th, 2011.
The Dark Fields, based on the book by Alan Glynn, follows a down-and-out writer (Cooper) who gets his hands on a top-secret pharmaceutical drug that makes one smarter. He experiences sudden financial and social success but soon discovers that the drug has lethal and lasting side effects. Before long, mysterious antagonists are pursuing him.
Look for more soon.
