LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Russell Crowe is in final negotiations to star in "Crash" writer-director Paul Haggis' next film, "The Next Three Days."

A remake of the 2008 French thriller "Pour Elle," the Lionsgate project tells the story of a married couple thrown into a harrowing situation when the wife is imprisoned for a murder she claims she didn't commit and the husband must devise a way to get her out.

Filming is scheduled to begin in September.

Crowe is finishing up filming on Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood," which will hit theaters in May via Imagine Entertainment and Universal. He last starred in "State of Play" and Scott's "Body of Lies," neither of which reached $40 million at the North American box office.
