Russell Crowe and Paul Haggis 'Crash' into Lionsgate
Duo to shoot 'The Next Three Days'
Russell Crowe and Paul Haggis are reuniting with the studio where they have had some of their most recent successes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the duo are set to respectively star in and direct "The Next Three Days" for Lionsgate.
Based on the 2008 French film "Pour Elle," the drama will find Crowe playing a teacher whose wife is convinced of a murder she insists she didn't commit. He comes up with a desperate plan to get her out.
Haggis, who also wrote the screenplay adaptation, last hooked up with the Lionsgate on the Oscar-winning picture "Crash." Crowe, who is currently filming "Robin Hood" with Ridley Scott, found his last hit with the studio's western "3:10 to Yuma."
Filming is expected to begin in Pittsburgh this September.
