Irish actor Liam Neeson has signed up to star opposite Australian star Russell Crowe in thriller "The Next Three Days."

Now there's a movie bound to attract a few female fans!

Crowe plays a professor whose wife (Elizabeth Banks) has been jailed for a crime she didn't commit. Neeson plays the man who helps get her set free.

The movie is a remake of the French hit, "Anything for Her," and has already started filming in Pittsburgh.

There's more Irish interest as well with Irish American Olivia Wilde, currently a big hit in "House" signing on as well.
