Billy Bob Thornton has signed on to join the D.J. Caruso-Shia LaBeouf reunion thriller, Eagle Eye, about a slacker (LaBeouf) and his mom (Michelle Monaghan) who are framed as terrorists. Thornton will play the over-enthusiastic homeland security agent who is after them.
And controversial director Roman Polanski has lined up his next project. He will be directing The Ghost, a political thriller based on Robert Harris's novel about a ghostwriter who unearths some information about a former British prime minister that then puts his life in jeopardy. Harris will write the adaptation.
