Elizabeth Banks is known for quirky, funny roles in movies like Zach and Miri Make a Porno, but for her next movie, she'll be teaming up with cinematic heavyweight Russell Crowe and all his Oscar gravitas for drama The Next Three Days.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film is based on Pour Elle, a French thriller, about a man who tries to save his wife after she's arrested and convicted for a murder she says she didn't commit.
