Colin Farrell set for Tanovic’s ‘Triage’

Paz Vega, Christopher Lee costar in film

Colin Farrell will star in “Triage,” the next pic by Bosnian helmer Danis Tanovic.

Paz Vega and Christopher Lee also star in the dark tale of a photojournalist who returns home following a dangerous assignment without his colleague and best friend.

Pic is produced by Parallel Films’ Alan Moloney, and ASAP Films’ Cedomir Kolar and Marc Baschet.

Kolar and Baschet produced Tanovic’s “No Man’s Land,” which won the 2001 Oscar for foreign language film.

“Triage” is a co-production with Tim Baish, Free Form and Mariela Besuievsky of Tornasol Films, Aramid Entertainment and the Irish Film Board.

HanWay Films is handling worldwide sales and will be selling the project at the Cannes Film Festival.

Pic will shoot on location in Ireland and at the Ciudad de la Luz studios in Alicante in Spain from April to June.

Italy’s RAI Cinema and France’s Canal Plus have already acquired the pic for their territories.

Project is another example of lasting cultural footprint of Brit multi-hyphenate Anthony Minghella, who died in March after complications following neck surgery; the film was initially set up in 2003 at Mirage Enterprises, the shingle run by Minghella and Sydney Pollack.
