Gleeson, Cornish to topline ‘Ordinary Man’

Brad Silberling's thriller shoots this fall in Belgrade

Brendan Gleeson and Abbie Cornish have been tapped to star in Brad Silberling’s thriller “An Ordinary Man,” with shooting set for the fall in Belgrade.

Silberling (“City of Angels”) will direct from his own original script, which centers on the unexpected relationship between a fictitious war criminal in hiding and his only human contact — his maid.

Silberling is producing through his Reveal Entertainment banner in a co-production with Disruptive Media and producers Chris Miller, James Burke and Michael Richter. David Lonner exec produces.

Radiant Films Intl., headed by Mimi Steinbauer, will handle international rights to the film and will introduce the project to buyers at Cannes.

Liam Neeson was previously attached to “An Ordinary Man.”

Gleeson was last seen in Universal’s “Safe House” and is currently in Relativity Media’s “The Raven.” He will next appear in Robert Redford’s “The Company You Keep,” currently in post-production.

Cornish recently finished shooting the comedy “Seven Psychopaths,” co-starring Woody Harrelson and Colin Farrell and set for release through CBS Films in 2013. She stars in “The Girl,” which made its debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

Silberling’s credits include “Moonlight Mile,” “Land of the Lost” and “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.” He will next direct a segment for “Jerusalem, I Love You.”

Silberling and the film are repped by Rena Ronson at UTA Independent, which is handling domestic sales.
