Warner Bros. has set “Lost” star Naveen Andrews to join Jodie Foster and Terrence Howard in “The Brave One,” the Neil Jordan-directed thriller about a woman struggling to recover from a brutal attack by setting out on a dark psychological and physical journey for revenge and justice.

WB is co-financing with Village Roadshow Pictures, and Joel Silver is producing with Susan Downey. Production is slated for August, and the film will be released by WB in June 2007.

Andrews will play the man who’s engaged to marry the victim (Foster), while Howard plays a police officer.

Andrews, whose films include “The English Patient,” most recently starred opposite Aishwarya Rai in “Provoked,” a British drama that bowed at the Cannes Film Festival.
