Besides Edward Norton's quick brush with Kingdom of Heaven, the guy has continued to remain out of the spotlight ever since The Italian Job. Though most figured a Job sequel would bring him out of his brief hiatus, it may take New Line Cinema and Colin Farrell with a badge to back them.

Pride and Glory

According to Variety, New Line Cinema is in negotiations with Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Noah Emmerich to star in Pride and Glory, a generational drama about a family of police officers in New York torn apart by a corruption scandal.

Norton is poised to play a homicide detective who is assigned to investigate the precinct run by his older brother (Emmerich). Farrell plays the investigator's best friend, a cop in that precinct who might be dirty himself

Gavin O’Connor penned the script for Pride and Glory with the help of Joe Carnahan. Gavin has opted to direct with his brother Greg O'Connor to produce. O'Connor began writing the film after his 1999 debut, Tumbleweeds, and he and his brother have been laboring that long to tell a story that is personal to both. It is being done through their Solaris banner.

"My father was a New York City detective, and I grew up in that world," the director said. "It's a celebration of honest cops, which was everything my father was about. Though it is fictional, it is an homage to my father."

This is O'Connor's first time working with Edward Norton and Colin Farrell. Edward Norton has recently finished filming The Illusionist and is set to begin production on The Painted Veil. We will be able to see Colin Farrell this year in the upcoming film The New World.

Stay tuned for updates.
