Elizabeth Banks Joins Russell Crowe in French Film Remake

Have you seen the French thriller Pour elle? I haven't, but now I'd like to before the English-language remake comes to theaters, courtesy of Paul Haggis (writer/director of Crash). The remake, titled The Next Three Days, had already nabbed Russell Crowe for the male lead and now it looks like Elizabeth Banks will play his wife.


The plot description for Pour elle reads: "Lisa and Julien are married and lead a happy uneventful life with their son Oscar. But their life radically changes one morning, when the police comes to arrest Lisa on murder charges. She's sentenced to 20 years of prison. Convinced of his wife's innocence, Julien decides to act. How far will he be willing to go for her?" Diane Kruger, currently starring in Inglourious Basterds, plays the wife in the French version.

I find Banks so funny and refreshing in her comedic roles, but she's been going kind of dramatic on us recently, playing a scary stepmother in The Uninvited and portraying Laura Bush in W. Do you like seeing her in more dramatic roles? To check out a French trailer for the original movie Pour elle,

The trailer is in French with no subtitles but it's still chilling, even if you don't understand the language.
