Anna Friel joins Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in The Dark Fields
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The latest, and probably last, casting news we have for the upcoming thriller THE DARK FIELDS is that the too-cute-for-words Anna Friel (from TV’s ‘Pushing Daisies’) has signed on for the film. She joins a cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Abbie Cornish and Tomas Arana. Neil Burger is directing the film based on the book by Alan Glynn.
The film is about a struggling man (Cooper) that stumbles upon a top secret pharmaceutical drug that makes you smarter. But after taking it and reaping personal and financial success, he discovers the drug has serious side effects, one of which is “trip-switching”, where time moves with a stop-motion quality. Eventually, certain people start to notice his situation and he finds himself on the run from them and from the drug’s side-effects. Friel will play Cooper’s ex-wife.
