Harrelson on 'Trans-Siberian' trip

Woody Harrelson will head the international cast of Brad Anderson's contemporary crime thriller "Trans-Siberian."

British actress Samantha Morton will play Harrelson's wife, with Kate Mara and Spanish heartthrob Eduardo Noriega playing the couple opposite them. Ben Kingsley rounds out the cast as a Russian police officer hot on the trail of the two couples.

The story focuses on an American couple on the famous Trans-Siberian train from Vladivostok to Moscow. What seems to be a simple train journey soon turns into a thrilling chase full of deception and murder as it becomes clear that not everybody is who they seem.

The film begins shooting Dec. 11 in Beijing, Russia and Lithuania.

"Trans-Siberian" is the follow-up to Anderson's "The Machinist," which starred Christian Bale.

Harrelson is also on tap to star alongside Will Ferrell in Kent Alterman's "Semi-Pro." His upcoming titles also include Paul Schrader's "The Walker," the Coen brothers' "No Country for Old Men" and Zak Penn's "The Grand."
