Jennifer Ehle has signed on to star opposite Edward Norton and Colin Farrell in New Line Cinema's crime drama "Pride and Glory."
Ehle will play Abby Tierney, a role that Samantha Morton was attached to play. Morton dropped out because of scheduling conflicts.
The story revolves around a three-generation family of New York cops. The family is thrown into turmoil when one son (Norton) uncovers a police corruption scandal involving his brother.
Gavin O'Connor is directing from a script he penned along with Joe Carnahan.
O'Connor also is producing alongside his brother Gregory O'Connor.
New Line's Toby Emmerich, Cale Boyter and Sam Brown are shepherding for the studio.
Ehle, whose credits include Neil LaBute's "Possession," "Sunshine" and the BBC production of "Pride and Prejudice," recently wrapped "Michael Clayton" opposite George Clooney.
She is co-repped by Endeavor and ICM London.
