"An Ordinary Man" directed by Brad Silberling....does it sound vaguely familiar? Well, if you have a good memory, you might remember this project came up on the radar two years ago but it now looks like things are ready to press forward.

Radiant Films International has announced they have obtained the international sales rights on the thriller that now has Abbie Cornish and Brendan Gleeson set to star. The picture, set to be written and directed by Silberling, will be a nice shift in gears for the helmer who is probably best known for "Moonlight Mile" and "City Of Angels." The story will center on the unexpected relationship between a fictitious war criminal in hiding, and his only human contact -- his maid. Back when the project was initially brewing, Liam Neeson was eyeing the lead role, said to be partially based on former Serbian leader and convicted war criminal Slobodan Milosevic. We presume that's still the case and the casting here makes for an intriguing pairing, with two solid actors taking on potentially great material.

The project will be repped at Cannes for buyers, and we're guessing if it sells like it should, we'll hopefully be seeing this one rolling in front of cameras soon.
