Fair or not, there’s a bit of “career comeback” buzz surrounding Stephen Dorff’s starring role in Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere — the guy could certainly do worse than linking up with Maria Bello as a next move. According to TheWrap, Dorff and Bello will star in the Peter Medak-directed thriller Carjacked. Scripted by Michael and Sherry Compton, Carjacked revolves around “a single mother and her child who are carjacked by a thief who has no intention of letting them go.” Ron Pearlman and Saffron Burrows were once set to play the lead roles, and Giovanni Ribisi was likewise attached to one draft of the script. But by the time cameras start rolling next month in Louisiana, it will be Dorff who is vehicularly terrorizing Bello and her daughter.
Somewhere opens on December 22nd, followed by Dorff appearances in the 2011 films Born to Be a Star (April 22, 2011) and Tarsem Sing’s Immortals (November 11, 2011). Bello will next be seen opposite Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, and Kevin Costner in The Company Men, which hits theaters October 22nd.
