February 22nd, 2011   Stef Arbitrage, Rumours 12 Comments

Richard Gere (Pretty Woman, Primal Fear) is currently in final talks to star opposite Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise, Dead Man Walking) and Eva Green (Casino Royale – 2006) in the high finance thriller Arbitrage.

Deadline reports that the official signing should be announced shortly, with filming due to begin in New York City as early as mid-April.

However, whether or not Gere may be able to accept the deal may depend on the viability of upcoming film State Of The Union — which has seen little action since adding the Pretty Woman star to the film and announcing the production last year.

Despite having no less than 4 producers and an estimated $40 million budget, State Of The Union has yet to sign any other key players or provide a filming schedule for the movie originally set for release some time in 2011.

Meanwhile, Arbitrage has added Aubrey Graham (Charlie Bartlett, TV’s Degrassi: The Next Generation) to join director and screenwriter Nicholas Jarecki (The Informers, The Outsider) as a cast member.

If accepted, Gere would be featured as a Wall Street player in a desperate struggle to sell off his trading empire and forced to turn to Sarandon to survive when his plans go awry.

    I agree Al Pacino is Great however Richard Gere is a under rated Actor which he happens to be a Great Actor.
    This will still be a Great Movie and The Director / Writer Nicholas Jeracki will also get the credit he deserves as well along natuarlly with Eva.
    Looking Forward to it and trying to get a part in the Movie as I will keep you folks informed :)

    I also preferred Pacino like George said before, but we would be more likely watching the movie just for Eva.

    Whatever work she has done from The Dreamers to Cracks has been phenomenal and I really hope she doesn’t lose the edge.

    There are stars and there are actresses, its good to know that Eva prefers to be an actress.

    To Nikos, Ti Kanis, Kala (I know very little Greek, am not sure if I have spellt it right in English).

    I agree with you and George as well as Al Pacino is a Block Buster Name but if he is out and Gere is in that will still be good as long as Eva is in it : )
