SYNOPSIS
Life seems perfect for John Brennan (Russell Crowe) until his wife, Lara (Elizabeth
Banks), is arrested for a murder she says she didn't commit. Three years into her
sentence, John is struggling to hold his family together, raising their son Luke (Ty
Simpkins) and teaching at community college while he pursues every means available to
prove her innocence. With the rejection of their final appeal, Lara becomes suicidal and
John decides there is only one possible, bearable solution: to break his wife out of prison.
Refusing to be deterred by impossible odds or his own inexperience, John devises an
elaborate escape plot and plunges into a dangerous and unfamiliar world, ultimately
risking everything for the woman he loves.

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
What would you do if the person you loved was suddenly arrested and taken from
you, maybe forever? What if your only chance to pull your family‟s life back from the
brink was for you to try to pull off a potentially deadly crime with all-but-impossible
odds of success? And if you did manage to succeed – then what?
These questions become heart-poundingly real in screenwriter/director Paul
Haggis‟s taut suspense thriller THE NEXT THREE DAYS. Haggis and his star, Russell
Crowe, give audiences a thriller with the kind of hero not often seen in modern iterations
of the genre: a keenly intelligent, methodical, but otherwise unremarkable man, whose
actions are driven by desperation, determination and, above all, love.
Haggis is well-known and admired for his psychologically rich, morally probing
dramas: as the writer/director of CRASH, which won him Academy Awards® for Best
Picture and Best Original Screenplay, and IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH; and as the
screenwriter of MILLION DOLLAR BABY, LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA and FLAGS
OF OUR FATHERS. But Haggis is no stranger to the thriller genre, having been a
screenwriter on the critical and popular James Bond film CASINO ROYALE. Thrillers
were firmly on the development agenda when Haggis and producer Michael Nozik
(SYRIANA, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES) formed their production company, Hwy
61, in 2008. Both partners were intrigued when the company‟s head of development,
Eugenie Grandval, showed them a copy of the French thriller POUR ELLE.
The partners felt the central premise could make a really compelling American
film. “I‟ve always wanted to make a thriller, especially one where a love story played
such a central role," Haggis comments.
“Here was Hitchcock's classic scenario, a
perfectly ordinary man who, in this case, thrusts himself into extraordinary
circumstances. He can't watch his wife and son suffer so much as they drift apart from
each other. But when he finds out what it takes to break her out, he has to ask himself a
very difficult question: would you save the woman you love if you knew that by doing
so, you would turn into someone that she might no longer be able to love?" That's what
always draws me to a subject -- a question I cannot answer for myself. When I find the
question, I know I have a film. But the film is also about the nature and power of trust --
-4-
what it means when you trust someone no matter what, when no one else does, when all
the evidence is against them -- when they can no longer even trust themselves."
Nozik felt the resulting film would be enticing to viewers like himself. “As an
audience member, I‟ve always been compelled by strong characters, great story and a
suspenseful plot that makes me wonder what‟s going to happen next. It‟s rare that I find
that as a moviegoer, and certainly rare as a producer,” says Nozik. “This was a perfect
piece for Paul, who can create fully realized, dramatic characters within the structure of
an exciting, commercial thriller.”
Haggis and Nozik took the project to Lionsgate, which had partnered with Haggis
on CRASH. Lionsgate acquired the rights to POUR ELLE from production companies
Wild Bunch and Fidélité Films, and Fidélité‟s Marc Missonnier and Olivier Delbosc also
joined the project.
Haggis set to work on re-imagining the film. His protagonist John Brennan is a
professor of English at a Pittsburgh community college, a loving husband and devoted
father. But very quickly John is thrown into a living nightmare when his wife, Lara, is
accused of a murder she says she didn't commit.
The next time we meet the family, three years have passed. Lara has been
convicted of murder and is incarcerated. Appeals have been pursued, and denied. Luke
has grown increasingly distant from his mother and John fears Lara will take her own
life. Fueled by an unfaltering conviction in his wife's innocence, John believes he is left
with no other option if he wants to save his wife and family. Although he is ill-equipped
to take the law into his own hands and orchestrate a prison break, he makes the complex
decision to commit a crime he knows he has little chance of accomplishing. And from
the moment authorities realize that Lara Brennan has escaped, the clock will be ticking.
The way John goes about this task – searching the Internet, reading books,
interviewing an ex-con-turned author – is a function of who he is as a person. Says
Nozik, “John‟s never been a criminal, but he is an academic and he knows how to
research. And that drives him through the process of figuring out how to break his wife
out of jail, and somehow put a life together after that with his son and wife. He‟s doesn‟t
have a lot of money, so he‟s faced with a lot of decisions throughout the film about how
to manage this scheme.”

Even as he was writing the screenplay, Haggis had his sights set on Academy
Award® winner Russell Crowe for the role of John Brennan. He points to the actor‟s
seamless performances in films as diverse as GLADIATOR, A BEAUTIFUL MIND,
MASTER AND COMMANDER and THE INSIDER. “Russell is one of the finest actors
of our time,” Haggis states simply. “He's right for almost any project but he was
certainly right for this one because so much of the intent of the film has to be
communicated without words.
A turn of a head or the flick of an eye has to tell us so
much, what John Brennan is thinking, what he's decided, where he is going next.
Russell is the type of actor who cracks open his chest and lets you stare right into his
heart -- deep, into the dark corners of his soul."
Once Crowe had read the script, he met with Haggis in London. "It all happened
very quickly. CRASH was a great movie, and of course an excellent calling card,” the
actor says. Having made his share of thrillers, Crowe also admired the tight construction
of Haggis‟s script, the events and sequencing that built tension and created daunting yet
realistic obstacles for the characters. “I loved the suspense of it. If you‟re going to take
on a thriller like this, you have to have a mind and eye for a complex narrative. It‟s clear
from Paul's work, that this complexity is one of his specialties. So I knew we could make
a great film."
Crowe was equally drawn in by the film‟s emotional themes and progressions. “I
was really struck by the conundrum John Brennan faces. This man has an undying love
for his wife and would do anything to save her. Yet to achieve what he has to achieve,
he must turn into somebody she may not love. To me, that was an interesting journey to
go on."
Casting the pivotal role of Lara Brennan was tricky. Lara may be a beloved wife
and mother, but it‟s an open question as to whether this quick-tempered woman did, in
fact, kill her boss. The filmmakers found the combination of qualities they were looking
for in Elizabeth Banks, whose diverse credits include W., SPIDER-MAN and “30 Rock.”
Says Haggis, “Elizabeth is a terrific actress. She has a quality of being the girl next door,
and yet, she has a great fire within her.”
Crowe and his co-star established an easy onscreen rapport, creating a portrait of a
marriage that feels lived-in and relatable. Says Crowe, “The beginning of the movie
-6-
establishes John and Lara as leading this normal, relatively placid life with their young
child. In a finite number of scenes, Elizabeth made it feel absolutely real.”
Banks notes that her character, a successful corporate professional, is not unlike
many contemporary women.
“Lara‟s ambitious, and she‟s balancing work and
motherhood and trying to maintain this really great relationship with the love of her life.
When she gets torn away from him, they‟re both devastated, but they deal with it in two
totally different ways,” she observes. “This movie isn‟t really about whether she‟s guilty
or innocent; it‟s about what can be proven in a court of law and whether that matters to
somebody who loves you and believes in you no matter what.”
She savored the opportunity to work with both Haggis and Crowe. “They are two
of the best and I couldn't wait to get on set and be challenged by them. It‟s not a stretch
to say that Russell is one of his generation‟s best actors. It‟s a little intimidating when
you first show up and then you get over it,” she laughs. “He‟s just so generous and so
charming.”
Surrounding Crowe and Banks in THE NEXT THREE DAYS is an ensemble of
highly accomplished and diverse actors in crucial supporting roles. Nozik attributes this
to Haggis' screenplay. “The script attracted a great cross-section of wonderful actors.
Paul writes such beautiful, complex characters, that for even the smallest roles, there's
always a rich and complex palette.”
Among those making brief but memorable appearances in the film is Oscar®
nominee Liam Neeson as Damon Pennington, an ex-con who has chronicled his multiple
jailbreaks in print and who offers John a blunt assessment – and moment-by-moment
blueprint – of exactly what such an endeavor means. Daniel Stern (DINER) plays the
Brennans‟ defense attorney, Meyer Fisk, a litigator too seasoned to offer false hope.
Musician and rap artist “RZA” Robert Diggs (DUE DATE, AMERICAN GANGSTER)
portrays Mouss, a street drug dealer who John naively turns to for assistance. Kevin
Corrigan (THE DEPARTED) plays Alex, a mid-level meth dealer whom John fatefully
targets for robbery.
“That‟s been a fun thing for me,” observes Crowe, “that every week or so
somebody new comes along and I get to do a scene with somebody who I respect and
whose work I enjoy. (Those) days on the set were particularly fun.”

Says Haggis, “It was an honor to have so many wonderful actors – Liam Neeson,
RZA, Daniel Stern and many others – give their time and talent in these small, but critical
roles. They made the film that much stronger.”
Haggis approached Tony®-Award winner Brian Dennehy for the role of George
Brennan, John‟s father. Over the years, Haggis and Dennehy had become friends through
the New York theatre scene. As George, Dennehy is a largely silent, but very powerful
presence. "Brian can portray so much with so little,” Haggis enthuses. “You know
exactly what he's thinking and exactly what he thinks of his son. His is such a masterful
actor. He thinks the thought and it is suddenly etched on his face, and he hasn't moved,
hasn't even narrowed his pupils."
Dennehy happily took on the role in his friend‟s film. “One of the reasons I liked
it was it was such a non-verbal part, and normally we don‟t do that in this country. It‟s a
very interesting and provocative film in terms of ethics and morality, and right and
wrong. And it‟s beautifully written by Paul, who‟s a great director, too.”
Olivia Wilde, best known for her role in the hit television series "House" and soon
to be seen in Disney‟s TRON: LEGACY, plays Nicole, a young mother who befriends
John in the park and, unbeknownst to her, is subsequently woven into the jailbreak
scheme. “She‟s a single mother and she assumes he‟s a single father and that they can
connect on that level,” Wilde remarks. “She‟s a reminder of how the rest of the world
moves on, even when you‟re stuck in the middle of a tragedy. And this other world
suddenly becomes visible to John, where people just meet and things are normal and
you‟re not thinking of breaking your spouse out of prison. It's not that he can't talk and
spend time with other people -- it's that he's unable to move beyond what he is focused
on, and that's breaking Lara out of prison."
The third actor who makes up the immediate family unit in THE NEXT THREE
DAYS is eight-year-old Ty Simpkins, who plays Luke, John and Lara's son. "He's an
incredibly skilled actor for such a young boy,” Haggis remarks. “Ty and Russell had
such wonderful chemistry. It was obvious to everyone on set that Russell, who has two
young sons of his own, is a natural when it comes to parenting and is very comfortable
playing that role in a movie."

Rounding out the cast are Michael Buie (MYSTERY ALASKA) as Mick
Brennan, John‟s younger brother; Helen Carey (JULIE & JULIA) as their mother, Grace
Brennan; Moran Atias (“Crash”) as Erit, Mick Brennan‟s fiancée; Lennie James
(SNATCH) as Lt. Nabulsi; and Jason Beghe (ONE MISSED CALL) as Detective Quinn.
Haggis took the somewhat unusual step of scouting locations for THE NEXT
THREE DAYS before he even began writing the script. "I was looking for a workingclass town which had evolved because I wanted John to come from a working-class
background. That was very important to me," Haggis explains. He and Nozik made a
trip to Pittsburgh, PA and as the filmmaker puts it, “we fell in love with it. The skyline is
great, and each neighborhood is proud and distinct and has held onto its roots and its
characteristics.”
Having settled on the location, Haggis was able to write with Pittsburgh in mind.
Says Crowe, “Pittsburgh is very much a character in the film, which is great. The
geography and the cityscape and the bridges and tunnels and the Allegheny County Jail
are all heavily featured in the actual screenplay.”
Principal photography took place in Pittsburgh between September 2009 and
December 2009. Production designer Laurence Bennett, who previously worked with
Haggis on CRASH and IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH, shared the director's enthusiasm
for the locale. “Paul and I tend to embrace what we find. Pittsburgh is definitely a
visually exciting city. Each of the neighborhoods is very unique and we really picked up
on that and enjoyed working in them."
Those neighborhoods provided defined stops on John Brennan‟s trajectory,
sketching in his past and his present. Scenes at John Brennan‟s childhood home were
filmed in a small row house in Sharpsburg, a former mill town up the river from
Pittsburgh.
John and Lara Brennan‟s house was a residence in Regent Square, a
neighborhood with a sizeable number of teachers. The city‟s aptly named Hill District
provided a backdrop for John‟s first, dangerously naïve sorties into the criminal
underworld.
The film shot at numerous institutional and municipal locations, including a
former children‟s hospital, the airport and the T-train commuter system, which connects
the southern suburbs with the city proper. Looming over it all is the Allegheny County
-9-
Jail, the largest high-rise jail in the U.S., and the facility where Banks‟ Lara Brennan is
incarcerated. Remarkably, the jail‟s administrators allowed THE NEXT THREE DAYS
to shoot in the facility, a process that involved giving the film crew access to the jail for
two days; shutting down visitor access; and impacting on the prison's daily routine. Says
production designer Bennett, “The people who administer the jail really go out of their
way to try to make it a humane, comfortable, clean and safe environment for the inmates
and visitors. They were incredibly accommodating to us.”
The fact the jail happens to be located in downtown Pittsburgh gave the film‟s
chase sequences a unique extra urgency and punch, says Banks. “When you‟re set in the
heart of a city, you have bridges and tunnels and buildings and avenues and people.
We‟re not out in the middle of nowhere, driving on country roads. Russell and I are in
the middle of downtown Pittsburgh, running for our lives!”
It‟s emblematic of a thriller that injects a bracing dose of realism into the genre,
thanks to a writer/director and a star working from the inside out. Says Nozik, “I call this
a smart man‟s thrill ride. Because every twist and turn -- you won‟t see it coming, but
when you get there, you‟ll be satisfied. There aren‟t chase sequences or action sequences
that come from nowhere. He‟s never doing things that are outside the realm of what any
of us could do if we were pressed into a circumstance like this.”
The wrong place/wrong time scenario and tight internal logic of THE NEXT
THREE DAYS make for a visceral cinematic experience, in Crowe‟s view. “This is one
of those stories where a simple set of circumstances puts a family‟s life together in
complete peril,” the actor remarks. “It‟s very intense, and you wouldn‟t want it to happen
to you. But it makes it really exciting for the people watching.”

LENNIE JAMES (Lieutenant Nabulsi) was born in Nottingham, but spent almost all of
his formative years growing up in South London. He attended Ernest Bevin School where he
prepared for a career in sports therapy and playing rugby. His head was turned toward acting
however after he followed a girlfriend into an audition and was asked to take part by the director.
He is a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, leaving early to start his first
professional job at The Derby Playhouse Theatre.
Lennie is an award-winning theatre actor and has worked in almost all the major theatres
in England, including The National, The Royal Court, The Young Vic and Shakespeare‟s Globe.
He has also appeared on Broadway in Two Gentlemen of Verona along side Mark Rylance.
Lennie has been a star of British television since the early 1990s, starring is such series as
“The Orchard House,” “Civvies,” “Comics,” “Out of the Blue,” “MI-5,” “Cold Feet,” “Buried,”
“Fallout” and “The State Within.” Lennie then came to the United States in 2006 to star opposite
Skeet Ulrich in the much-loved and history-making CBS series “Jericho.” At present, Lennie is a
series regular on the hit HBO “Hung” starring Thomas Jane and Jane Adams. He can also be seen
in the upcoming AMC drama “The Walking Dead,” written and directed by Frank Darabont.
On the big screen Lennie is probably best known for his role of „Sol‟ in the Guy Ritchie
film SNATCH opposite Brad Pitt, Benicio Del Toro and Jason Statham. He can also be seen in a
number of other films including SAHARA; LUCKY BREAK; AMONG GIANTS; LES
MISERABLE, opposite Geoffrey Rush, Liam Neeson and Claire Danes; and Michael
Winterbottom‟s 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE. He is currently shooting COLOMBIANA opposite
Zoe Saldana and LOCKOUT opposite Guy Pearce.
In 2000, STORM DAMAGE, Lennie‟s first film as a writer, was screened on the BBC. It
garnered much critical acclaim and won a Royal Television Society award, a Riems
Internationales award and a BAFTA award nomination in 2001. This led Lennie toward a
burgeoning career as a writer for stage, screen and a sometime columnist for a number of
Britain‟s major newspapers.
Lennie is married with three teenaged daughters and it is here that he fulfills his most

soundtrack CD of THE BODYGUARD. His father Renato Beghe was nominated by President

Jason‟s first job was at fifteen as a doorman in the building where he lived with his family. He

when he was offered a modeling job in Venice, Italy after being “discovered” by renowned
fashion photographer Bruce Weber. Jason ended up living mostly in Milan and Paris for the next
three years where he became one of the top male models in Europe after shooting a 50-page

she can to intimately explore her craft.

Players. Aisha was a student at the prestigious LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts, and
worked after school spreading the message of safe sex, abstinence, self esteem, preventing sexual
abuse, and dealing with peer pressure through scripted roles and improvisation. The foundation
for her craft was more than an outlet for artistic expression; it was a call to action.

honors and acclaim, having starred in Mame, as „Agnes Gooch‟; Anything Goes, as „Reno
Sweeney‟; Tartuffe, as „Dorine‟; A Piece Of My Heart, as „Steele‟; and in various roles in The

ABOUT THE FILMMAKERS
PAUL HAGGIS (Director, Screenwriter, Producer) is the award-winning filmmaker
who, in 2006, became the first screenwriter to write two Best Film Oscar® winners back-to-back
- MILLION DOLLAR BABY (2004) directed by Clint Eastwood, and CRASH (2005) which he
himself directed. For CRASH, he won Academy Awards® for Best Picture and Best Original
Screenplay. The film also received an additional four nominations including one for Haggis'
direction. CRASH reaped numerous awards during its year of release from associations such as
the IFP Spirit Awards, the Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA.
In 2006, Haggis' screenplays included the duo Clint Eastwood productions FLAGS OF
OUR FATHERS and LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA, the latter earning him his third screenplay
Oscar® nomination. He also helped pen CASINO ROYALE, which garnered considerable
acclaim for reinvigorating the James Bond spy franchise.
In 2007, Haggis wrote, directed and produced IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH for Warner
Independent Pictures, Samuels Media and Summit Entertainment. The film, which starred
Tommy Lee Jones, Charlize Theron and Susan Sarandon, was a suspense drama of a father's
search for his missing son, who is reported AWOL after returning from Iraq. Jones earned a Best
Actor Oscar® nomination for his performance in the film.
Haggis was born in London, Ontario, Canada and moved to California in his early 20s.
For over two decades he has written, directed and produced television shows such as
"thirtysomething" and "The Tracey Ullman Show," and also developed credits as a pup writer on
many Norman Lear sitcoms. He created the acclaimed, if short-lived, CBS series "EZ Streets"
which the New York Times cited as one of the most influential shows of all time, noting, that
without it "there would be no Sopranos."
Hwy 61 is the production company Haggis formed with his friend and producing partner
Michael Nozik. THE NEXT THREE DAYS is their first feature.
Haggis is equally committed to his private and social concerns. He is the founder of
Artists for Peace and Justice. Under this umbrella, many of his friends in the film business have
come forward to build schools and a rehabilitation clinic serving the children of the slums of Haiti
(www.APJNow.org). Haggis was a key element early this year in the 25th anniversary updating
of the “We Are the World” video which he directed and was used to benefit Haiti relief.
He divides his time between residences in Los Angeles and New York.
A producer of over twenty years, MICHAEL NOZIK (Producer) has worked on
numerous award-winning films, and in 1994 received an Academy Award® nomination for
QUIZ SHOW, directed by Robert Redford. He is currently partnered with Paul Haggis at their
production company, Hwy 61, in Santa Monica, CA.
Prior to the formation of Hwy 61, Nozik produced LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA,
directed by Mike Newell and starring Javier Bardem, as well as produced Academy Award®winning SYRIANA, written and directed by Stephen Gaghan and starring George Clooney, Matt
Damon and Jeffery Wright.
In 2004, Nozik produced THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES, a film directed by Walter
Salles, starring Gael Garcia Bernal, which won a BAFTA and an Academy Award®.
As a founding partner of Serenade Films, Nozik executive produced GAME SIX,
directed by Michael Hoffman and staring Michael Keaton and Robert Downey Jr.; 12 AND
HOLDING, directed by Michael Cuesta; GREAT NEW WONDERFUL, directed by Danny
Leiner, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Tony Shalhoub; as well as THE NARROWS.
Prior to this, some of the films he produced are PEOPLE I KNOW, starring Al Pacino,
Kim Basinger and Tea Leoni; THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE, directed by Redford and
starring Matt Damon and Will Smith; HOW TO KILL YOUR NEIGHBOR‟S DOG, starring

Aniston. In addition, under director Mira Nair, Nozik produced three films including THE
PEREZ FAMILY, MISSISSIPI MASALA and the Academy Award®-nominated SALAAM
BOMBAY.
Other producing credits include THUNDERHEART, starring Val Kilmer; CROSSING
