Eric Bana On For New Suspense Thriller

Gah! Don'tcha just hate it when you're a legal type and you're suddenly forced to work together with your ex on a case? We know we do.... It sounds like the recipe for a frothy romantic comedy, possibly starring Katherine Heigl and some up-and-coming studly type, but in reality it's the basis for a new suspense thriller starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall.

Boy A director John Crowley is directing, working from a script by Steve "Eastern Promises" Knight. The film doesn't have a title yet*, which usually makes us question their commitment to sparkle motion, but we'll let it slide for now as there is at least a basic plot online.

As mentioned above, Hall and Bana will play former lovers who are thrown back together (professionally, at least) when they're paired as part of the defence team in a high-profile terrorism case. Soon, loyalties and being tested and nerves are being frayed. Oh, and PR cliches are being spouted, such as these by Focus Features bosses James Schamus and Andrew Karpen in a statement about the movie picked up by Variety: "Working Title and John Crowley have not only crafted a nail-biting thriller, but an emotional roller-coaster as well – one that speaks to the heart of the human condition in our time."

Crowley is set to start shooting this April in the UK. Bana was last seen in Hanna and is hearing up to shoot Elvis & Nixon. He's also just finished making Blackbird. Hall will next show up in Lay The Favourite.

*We'd suggest Brief Re-Encounter, but that seems too silly.
