Vera Farmiga may be well on her way to an Oscar nomination this fall, with her role opposite George Clooney in Up in the Air gaining the kind of accolades she's deserved countless times before in her career. And she's already cashing in for more roles. Farmiga has signed on to star opposite James Caan and Keanu Reeves in Henry's Crime, a romantic comedy about a man (Reeves) falsely accused of robbing a bank in Buffalo.

According to Variety, Anvil! The Story Of Anvil director Sacha Gervasi wrote the screenplay, and Malcolm Venville will direct. I know what you're thinking about Reeves' wooden acting, and how if he were robbing your bank he probably wouldn't be able to convince you he meant it, and yeah, that's fair. But every now and then he's pretty good in something, and with Farmiga opposite him, maybe he'll be encouraged to step up his game.
