After losing out on the Wolverine movie, it looks like director D.J. Caruso isn’t spending his days crying over it. He’s already moving on with the earlier announced terrorism-themed thriller “Eagle Eye”, to star his “Disturbia” muse Shia LaBeouf. Now Caruso can add Michelle Monaghan to his cast. Monaghan was last seen pretending to be in love with Tom Cruise in the third “Mission Impossible” installment and can be seen in the upcoming “Gone Baby Gone”, the directorial debut of Ben Affleck.
Monaghan plays a single mother who forms an unlikely alliance with LaBeouf as they are framed as terrorists and are forced to join a cell plotting a political assassination. Hillary Seitz wrote the most recent draft. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Pat Crowley and Ed McDonnell are producing.
Paramount will distribute the film worldwide.
