Russell Crowe is in final negotiations to star in writer-director Paul Haggis’ next film, “The Next Three Days,” for Lionsgate.
Haggis, who made his Oscar-winning “Crash” at the studio, is writing, directing and producing the remake of the French thriller “Pour Elle.” It tells the story of a married couple thrown into a harrowing situation when the wife is imprisoned for a murder she claims she didn’t commit and the husband must devise a way to get her out.
Lionsgate acquired the remake rights to the 2008 original, written and directed by Fred Cavaye, from Wild Bunch and Fidelite Films in June. Filming is scheduled to begin in September.
Haggis’ Highway 61 Films partner Michael Nozik and Fidelite’s Marc Missonnier and Olivier Delbosc are producing. Lionsgate execs Alli Shearmur and Wolfgang Hammer are overseeing for the studio.
The WME-repped Crowe is finishing up filming on Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood” for Imagine Entertainment and Universal, which will release the film in May. He last starred in “State of Play” and “Body of Lies.”
Lionsgate will release “Gamer” and “Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All by Myself” in the fall.
