Jennfier Garner and Peter Berg for Uni Pic
Seems “Elektra” didn’t kill Jennifer Garner’s film career after all – or, for that matter, leave her stationary in rom-com terra firma, either! – with the long-limbed “Alias” heroine in talks to join multi-skilled Jamie Foxx for Universal’s “The Kingdom”.
The thriller would reunite Garner with Peter Berg – who’s directing the movie – who co-starred with her in an episode of “Alias”, early on. He played double-crossing Noah Hicks on the show in it’s first season.
Chris Cooper also co-stars in the film that revolves around an FBI team on assignment in a Middle Eastern country investigating a terrorist bombing in one of the compounds housing Western workers.
Garner’s next film is the romantic comedy “Catch and Release”, with Timothy Oyphant and Kevin Smith.
