The star of “The Break-Up” snagging big roles


Seems Vince Vaughn is still as in-demand as ever – – – especially, since the success of the lacklustre rom-com “The Break-Up”, which grossed a sumly $114 million in the U.S.

Now, Paul Haggis, of “Crash” fame, is looking to cast the towering funnyman in “Against All Enemies”, the film version of Richard Clarke’s inside-Washington memoir, says The Hollywood Reporter.

While no offer has been made to the “Wedding Crashers” star because Columbia Pictures is fine-tuning the film’s budget, the helmer has had discussions with Vaughn about filling the role of the FBI’s John O’Neill.

Sean Penn, who recently cast Vaughn in his drama “Into the Wild,” has been widely reported to be on board to play Clarke.

“Enemies” chronicles how the Bush administration handled the al-Qaida threat both before and after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The former U.S. terrorism czar’s story offers an insider’s account into the nation’s security apparatus, featuring a cast of Washington power brokers. Haggis is supervising scribe James Vanderbilt as he pens the second draft of the screenplay based on the book published by Free Press in 2004.

Speaking of Vaughn, IGN FilmForce have confirmed that he’s still interested in starring in “Speed Racer”, a film based on the cartoon classic, which the Wachowski brothers have been linked to. Apparently Vaughn will play the title character’s brother, Racer X.
