Al Pacino & Russo In 'Two For The Money' Talks

Al Pacino and Rene Russo are in talks to join Matthew McConaughey in Morgan Creek's Two for the Money, says the Hollywood Reporter.

The movie, helmed by D.J. Caruso, sees McConaughey play a star college football player who is at the top of his sport until he blows out his knee during a game, forcing him to choose a new profession. He winds up getting into the sports gambling business only to be recruited by Pacino's character, who runs one of the best sports-booking operations in the country. Russo would play the wife of Pacino's character.

The project, which is thought to be budgeted at $20 million, starts shooting in August in Vancouver.
