Al Pacino has set financial thriller “Arbitrage” as his next film. He’ll star opposite Eva Green and Susan Sarandon.

Writer-director Nicholas Jarecki is set to start principal photography in Gotham next spring.

Michael Ohoven (“Capote”) is producing and financing through his Infinity Media banner. Kevin Turen and Robert Salerno also are producers.

Lisa Wilson’s Parlay Films, an affiliate of GK Films, is selling international rights and will debut the project at the American Film Market. ICM is repping North American rights.

Laura Bickford (“Traffic”) and Brian Young (“The Runaways”) are exec producing the pic.

“Arbitrage” stars Pacino as a hedge fund magnate who is in over his head and desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire to a major bank before his fraud is revealed. But an unexpected, bloody error forces him to turn to the most unlikely corner for help.

    Oooh, that sounds exciting, and again, very different from what Eva has done before… Plus Pacino is a great actor!

    Great luck for Al to co-star with Eva! It’s the first shooting for Eva in the other coast of the Atlantic (New York). Is she approaching Hollywood? Was this some kind of spell from Morgana? Who knows… 🙂

    I found this little snippet, offering a little more information on Eva’s role:

    Aside from a shady business, the hedge fund guy (Pacino) juggles a wife (Sarandon) and an art dealer mistress (Green), as well as rivals who want to bring him down.

    And unrelated to Arbitage, I found this on imdb, referring to 2004’s “Closer” (with Jude Law, Clive Owen, etc.):

    The role of Alice was set to be Eva Green’s Hollywood movie debut, but she dropped out at the last minute.

    This was news to me! Does anyone happen to know why Eva dropped out?

    EvaAnne: Thnx for the fruitful info. Regarding “Closer” I haven’t heard anything related to Eva. She never mentioned it either. It was just after the Dreamers and maybe concurrently with Arsene Lupin. Mystery… We need a detective here…

    Hmm, I really hope Pacino steps up his game in this – he’s become ‘hammy’, to say the least, in the past few years…I also hope this film doesn’t take up too much of Eva’s time, so she can get on with her other more interesting (imho) projects 🙂

    Because it was a bad part presumably – !

    EvaAnne: Honestly, I think that bit of “news” is more or less someone’s complete fabrication. I remember when “Closer” was announced – I was an avid fan of several of its cast members, so I was watching closely – and I’m pretty sure that no one other than Natalie Portman was ever attached to Portman’s role (at least publicly). Cate Blanchett was originally attached to Julia Roberts’ role, but dropped out (not at the last minute) due to pregnancy. But never was Eva’s name mentioned.

    Nausicaa: you are certainly the detective I was asking for 🙂 Thnx for the info

    I doubt that arbitrage is a right word for the situation mentioned in the brief.

    What could be really interesting is a music for romantic dance in Arbitrage. al pacino was 70 this year. Nevertheless he has got Best Actor in 1992 for his dance in Scent of a Woman (Por Uno Cabeza). One more good tango and may be award would be given to Eva…

    Nausicaa: Thanks! That sounds very plausible.

    When you think about what Al Pacino brings to the screen regardless of age as we all would agree I’m sure and Mix that with a Young Up and coming Actress like Eva Green well that is what I call a Mixture of something that will become a Success!
