Brendan Gleeson and Abbie Cornish will star in “An Ordinary Man,” the latest film from Brad Silberling, director of “Moonlight Mile” and “Land of the Lost.”
Silberling will direct from his own script about the relationship between a war criminal in hiding and his maid. Radiant Films International will handle international rights and shop it at the Cannes Film Market.
“There's no greater pleasure than crafting a tale for brilliant actors to sink their teeth into, and with Brandon and Abbie, I feel like I've hit the jackpot,” Silberling said in a statement. “Watching them go toe to toe in this suspenseful tightrope walk of veiled intentions, cat and mouse psychology and desperate gambling for human contact – it will be a filmmaker's dream to capture.”
The dramatic thriller is a co-production teaming Silberling's Reveal Entertainment with Disruptive Media and producers Chris Miller, James Burke and Michael Richter.
Gleeson has kept busy, appearing in “The Raven” and “Safe House” so far this year, as well as lending his voice to “The Pirates! Band of Misifts.”
