Colin Farrell has landed another job! When I last reported on the Irish actor, he’d just signed on to star in The Way Back, with Academy Award nominated actress Saoirse Ronan. He must really like the movie Atonement, because in his next project he”ll work with Ronan’s former co-star Keira Knightley. According to Variety, both Farrell and Knightley have signed on to star in the crime drama, London Boulevard.
Farrell will play a South London criminal who, after release from prison, tries to give up the gangster life by becoming a handyman for a reclusive young actress.
London Boulevard will mark the directorial debut for William Monahan. Monahan is best known for penning the Oscar winning script for 2006′s The Departed. The writer turned director adapted the script for London Boulevard, which is based off of the Ken Bruen novel of the same name. Boulevard is scheduled to begin shooting in, and around London this summer. The film is produced by Graham King, Quintin Curtis, and Monahan.
