Colin Firth & Ed Harris Offered RolesWhat the hell happened to Neil LaBute? Once considered a bold new emerging cinematic voice after delivering two caustic, blistering and hilarious films "In The Company Of Men" and "Your Friends & Neighbors" the director unwisely started taking on projects not based on his own writing. This led to the films like "Nurse Betty" and "Posession" and though he rebounded with the underrated "The Shape Of Things," matters got considerably worse with a trifecta of awful including "The Wicker Man" (man gets attacked by bees), "Lakeview Terrace" (man gets attacked by Samuel L. Jackson) and "Death At A Funeral" (man gets attacked by a midget). Which brings us to Brendan Fraser, who has made a career out of second-rate blockbusters, nauseating family films with the odd drama that no one ever watches thrown in for good measure.

Following the film's trailer which dropped earlier in the month, we now have a look at a poster for the film. And no, it's not earth-shaking or anything special, but it does the job of getting us to write about the movie again.
