Anna Friel Joins Dark Fields

Anna Friel, who has been spending some time treading the boards in the West End, has headed back to the States and nabbed a role alongside Bradley Cooper in Neil Burger’s drug thriller Dark Fields.

Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish are already aboard the film, which sees a washed-up writer (Cooper) stumbling upon a secret experimental drug that makes the user smarter.

Clearly having not read Flowers For Algernon, he takes it, and enjoys the social and financial success it offers, before realising it also comes with a lethal downside, including “trip-switching”, where time appears to move in a stop-motion style. Oh, and people are suddenly after him.

Friel will be playing his ex-wife, a woman who was a vibrant go-getter before they split. Wonder if she’ll help or hinder him?
