A new poster and trailer have been released for writer/director Paul Haggis' new thriller, The Next Three Days, which stars Russell Crowe as a man who must plan a prison break for his wife (Elizabeth Banks) after she is accused of a crime she did not commit.
The 70's-style poster shows Crowe in shades with the tagline "what if you had 72 hours to save everything you live for?" while the trailer shows that the The Next Three Days is Haggis' action movie debut as a director after the dramas In the Valley of Elah and Crash. The movie appears like it was an enjoyable experience for both director and actor, as Haggis recently agreed to write the script for an adaptation of the TV show The Equalizer, which has Crowe attached to star.

The Equalizer just barely missed our list of Ten '80s Shows We Want to See as Movies. But that didn't matter to Russell Crowe, who attached himself to the adaptation as actor and producer in June, despite the fact that there was no script. Crowe's The Next Three Days director Paul Haggis looks ready to fix that. more on The Equalizer's vigilante justice >> Posted 09.29.10 by Ryan

Actor Liam Neeson continues along the upward trajectory his career has been on since Taken surprised everyone at the box office. He recently wrapped photography on Clash of the Titans, in which he plays Zeus, and is currently filming the big-screen adaptation of the classic The A-Team TV show, in which he will portray the team's leader, Hannibal.
Neeson's most recent gig, according to Variety has him starring alongside Russell Crowe in writer-director Paul Haggis' latest film, The Next Three Days.
In Days, an adaptation of the 2008 French film Pour Elle, Crowe plays a teacher whose wife (Elizabeth Banks) has been falsely incarcerated for a murder she didn't commit. Desperate to break his wife out of prison before she can commit suicide, Crowe's character elicits the aid of an ex-con (Neeson) who is an expert on prison breaks.
Days also stars Brian Bennehy, Olivia Wilde, Daniel Stern, Aisha Hinds, and The RZA. Posted 10.05.09 by BrentJS
Sony announced today that Swiss director Marc Forster (Monster's Ball, Stranger than Fiction) has been tapped to helm the next James Bond flick, currently known as Bond 22. Forster, who just recently completed production on The Kite Runner, was chosen from a list of candidates that reportedly included the likes of Tony Scott (Deja Vu), Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines), and Alex Proyas (I, Robot).
Forster's hiring comes on the heels of last month's announcement that Casino Royale scribe Paul Haggis will be brought back to help write a follow-up. Haggis received much of the credit for helping revitalize the Bond franchise with his re-write of the Royale script.
Bond 22 is set to begin shooting in December at London's venerable Pinewood Studios, with Daniel Craig set to once again play the iconic British superspy. Posted 06.19.07 by reelz
Paul Haggis, the heavy-handed Crash scribe credited with revitalizing the James Bond franchise with his work on the Casino Royale script, has signed on to help write the follow-up, reports the Los Angeles Times.
The latest Bond flick, currently known as Bond 22, is still without a director. According to the Times, there are four helmers vying for the job: Tony Scott (Deja Vu), Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines), Marc Forster (Monster's Ball) and Alex Proyas (I, Robot).
Not exactly a director's Hall of Fame (save for Forster, who has done fantastic work in the dramatic realm).
Bond 22 is slated for a November 2008 release. Posted 05.23.07 by reelz
