Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal are in negotiations to star in Jim Sheridan's "Brothers" for Relativity Media.
The film, a remake of Susanne Bier's Danish-language war drama, centers on a man (Maguire) who is sent to fight in Afghanistan while his black-sheep brother (Gyllenhaal) cares for his wife and child.
Superspy Jason Bourne hit the target again at the international box office as "The Bourne Ultimatum" dominated a typically moderate early fall frame with $20.8 million at 4,333 playdates in 46 markets.
The third Bourne pic has topped U's expectations in showing continued traction in multiple markets en route to a $125 million overseas cume. It's already surpassed "Bourne Supremacy" at $112 million and "The Bourne Identity" at $92 million. It is still to open in 14 territories, including Italy and China in November.
It's become only the third pic in 2007 to win four foreign frames, joining "Shrek the Third" and "Night at the Museum," which won the first five weekends of the year.
