Spader, Phillippe, Gugino Seek “Virtue”

James Spader, Ryan Phillippe and Carla Gugino have joined the dramatic thriller “By Virtue Fall” which Sheldon Turner penned and will direct for QED says 24 Frames.

Eric Bana stars in the story of two ATF agents who find themselves on opposite sides of the friendship divide after one sells out the other. Colin Farrell was linked to the other lead role last year but has opted out.

Jennifer Klein will produce. No production schedule has yet been set, but Bana hopes to make it his next film after he wraps “Blackbird”.
