Harrelson heads for ‘HiLo Country’ next

NEW YORK — After walking a “Thin Red Line” for Terence Malick, Woody Harrelson will move to Stephen Frears’ “HiLo Country” for Polygram’s Working Title, sources said Monday, confirming earlier reports (Daily Variety, April 3).

Harrelson, who nabbed an Oscar nomination for Milos Forman’s “The People vs. Larry Flynt,” is currently filming “Palmetto” with Elisabeth Shue under helmer Volker Schlondorff. He will then shoot “Red Line” in Australia before the Frears pic.

“HiLo” is based on a Max Evans book that filmmaker Sam Peckinpah has long wanted to bring to the bigscreen. It was adapted by Walon Green, who also scripted Peckinpah’s “The Wild Bunch.”

Harrelson will next appear in Michael Winterbottom’s “Welcome to Sarajevo,” which screened in competition at the Cannes Film Festival and will be released in November by Miramax Films, and Barry Levinson’s “Wag the Dog” with Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman, a 1998 New Line Cinema release.

Bryan Lourd of Creative Artists Agency negotiated Harrelson’s deal.
