LONDON (Hollywood Reporter) - Colin Farrell will play a photojournalist in Bosnian director Danis Tanovic's dark drama "Triage." Tanovic, whose "No Man's Land" won the Oscar for foreign-language film in 2002, will direct from his own adaptation of Scott Anderson's novel.
Farrell will star as a photojournalist named Mark who returns home from a dangerous assignment. When his colleague and best friend fails to return home, Mark's girlfriend, Elena (Paz Vega), must find the clues to the mystery that's slowly killing her boyfriend. Christopher Lee also stars.
The film is scheduled to begin shooting this month on location in Ireland and in Spain. Farrell is currently in U.S. theaters with the acclaimed black comedy "In Bruges."
