Keri Russell, last seen in Waitress & Bedtime Stories has just agreed to star with Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser in an untitled drama for CBS Films.
The film will be based on the true story about of the Crowley family and their attempt to find a cure for two of their children diagnosed with the rare disease Pompe. The condition was so rare that at the time there was no medication produced to treat it.
Russell will play Aileen Crowley, the stay-at-home mom trying to create a normal life for her kids while her husband, John (Fraser) teams up with Ford who will play the scientist racing against time to find the cure for Pompe.
The production begins on April 6th and will be directed by Tom Vaughan, who directed Starter For 10 and What Happens In Vegas.
