Jennifer Ehle has signed on to star opposite Edward Norton and Colin Farrell in New Line Cinema's crime drama Pride and Glory, says The Hollywood Reporter.
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.
"Scheduling conflicts" might be a euphemism, according to the goss on the IMDB forums. Speaking of which, the Pride and Glory insider molassey posts weekly location updates.
