Bradley Cooper might have some eye candy on the set of Dark Fields with the (possible) addition of Anna Friel. Currently in negotiations with Relativity, she is hoping to co-star in the thriller.
Anna Friel in Talks for Dark Fields
Also starring Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish, Dark Fields centers on a down-and-out writer (Cooper) who gets his hands on a top-secret pharmaceutical drug that makes one smarter. He experiences sudden financial and social success but soon discovers that the drug has lethal and lasting side effects, including "trip-switching," a phenomenon in which time moves with a stop-motion quality. Before long, mysterious antagonists are pursuing him.
Friel will play Cooper's ex-wife, a woman who was a go-getter before their breakup.
If Friel looks familiar to you, I have a couple reasons why. First, she played the romantic interest in Pushing Daisies and, second, she was recently seen opposite Will Ferrell in Land of the Lost.
