Irish actor COLIN FARRELL is finally set to join the Hollywood A-list. The Dublin-born star of TIGERLAND (2000) is currently in talks to star in THE FARM, a big budget DISNEY CIA thriller.
Farrell has met SPYGLASS ENTERTAINMENT, which is producing the film about a trainee CIA agent who suspects his instructor is spying for the Chinese government. And Hollywood superstar AL PACINO is being courted for the part of the suspected double agent.
The Farm is loosely inspired by the true story of HAROLD NICHOLSON, a double agent who taught at CAMP PEARY, a CIA facility nicknamed The Farm, from 1994-1996. Farrell has a handful of new movies set to be released, including HART'S WAR (2001), PHONE BOOTH (2001) and AMERICAN OUTLAWS (2001).
He recently finished filming the futuristic thriller MINORITY REPORT (2002) with TOM CRUISE. (RXT/STM/NFA)
