Though Paul Haggis was originally set to follow Crash with the adaptation of Richard Clarke's Against All Enemies, it seems that moviegoers may now be burnt out with all the 9-11 films or more interested now with the war in Iraq.

Theron, Jones for Haggis's Garden of Elah

According to Variety, Paul Haggis is in talks to direct Tommy Lee Jones and Charlize Theron in The Garden of Elah.

Warner Independent Pictures will distribute the film, as they own the material from which Haggis wrote the script.

Jones will play a career soldier whose son mysteriously goes AWOL, shortly after returning to the U.S. from the front lines in Iraq. Theron will play a local police detective who helps him get to the bottom of the soldier's disappearance.

The film is a fictionalized version of a true story, in which retired Army vet named Lanny Davis uncovered that his son had been murdered during a night of carousing. He'd been attacked by members of his own platoon who were still hopped up from a ferociously violent battlefield tour in Baghdad.

Charlize Theron has already got a few projects lined up including Battle in Seattle and The Ice at the Bottom of the World.

Tommy Lee Jones has an empty to-do list with only one film, No Country for Old Men, on his 2007 release lineup.

Stay tuned for updates.
