Thomas has ‘Hearts’

She'll join Ford in project for Pollack at Col

NEW YORK — After her plans to join Harrison Ford in the Phil Robinson-directed “Age of Aquarius” were dashed by budget overruns, Kristin Scott Thomas is near a deal to co-star with Ford this fall in “Random Hearts,” the Sydney Pollack-directed film at Columbia, sources said.

“Random Hearts” is based on a novel by “War of the Roses” author Warren Adler. Ford and Thomas will play two people who meet after their spouses die in an airplane crash. A romantic relationship is kindled after Ford’s character investigates the death of his wife and finds out she had been having an affair with Thomas’ husband.

The film is a Rastar/Mirage Production to be produced by Pollack and Rastar president Marykay Powell. Rastar is Ray Stark’s Col-based production company. Scripted by Karl Luedtke and David Rayfiel, “Random Hearts” starts production in D.C. this September.

Thomas, who was Oscar-nominated for “The English Patient,” most recently toplined “The Horse Whisperer” opposite Robert Redford. She had previously committed to co-star with Ford earlier this year in “The Age of Aquarius,” a drama set in civil war-torn Bosnia in which she’d have played a relief worker, with Ford a mercenary pilot; the two fall in love. The film, a co-production between Universal and DreamWorks, fell apart over logistical difficulties that sent the budget spiraling.

Thomas is repped by CAA.
