Keri Russell has signed to star alongside Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford in the Tom Vaughan-helmed untitled Crowley project for CBS Films.

The drama, which starts lensing April 6, will be the first film to go into production for the new company.

Russell will play Aileen Crowley, a mother who tries to build a normal home life for her sick children while her husband, John (Fraser), and an unconventional scientist (Ford) race against time to find a cure. Robert Nelson Jacobs (“The Water Horse”) penned the screenplay, which was inspired by a Wall Street Journal article and subsequent book, “The Cure,” by Geeta Anand.

Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher are producing alongside Carla Shamberg. Ford is exec producing.

Russell, who most recently appeared alongside Adam Sandler in “Bedtime Stories,” earned kudos for her starring role in Adrienne Shelly’s “Waitress.”
