Russell Crowe re-teams with Gladiator director Ridley Scott this fall for the new mob movie American Gangster, but the two love working together so much that they’re already filming on another project. The AP reports that Crowe is currently in the Baltimore area shooting the new Ridley Scott thriller Body of Lies.

The film stars Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio in the story of a former journalist who comes out of Iraq with a shattered leg only to hired by the CIA to help in tracking down an Al Queda leader in Jordan. It’s based on a fictional counterterrorism tale by author David Ignatius. DiCaprio stars as the journalist Roger Ferris while Crowe plays his CIA contact, a division chief named Ed Hoffman.

So far, collaboration between Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott has been something of a mixed bag. Gladiator was good (but a little overrated), while their last movie, the wine-swilling mid-life crisis flick A Good Year was completely awful. If American Gangster ends up being good, does that mean Body of Lies has to suck?
