Irish leading man Colin Farrell and Eric Bana are said to be in talks to costar in 'By Virtue Fall,' a awkwardly titled indie drama to be directed by the writer of 'Up in the Air,' Sheldon Turner.

The pair would play guys who become friends and then business partners until it all sours leading to betrayal and revenge.

Those are themes that Farrell need only refer to his own career circa 2005 to know all about. Currently the two actors are angling for better pay for the gig but lets hope the script and the potential best actor awards tilt them over the edge.
