Javier Bardem ( No Country for Old Men), Mickey Rourke ( Iron Man 2) and Jason Statham ( Transporter) are attached to the film Potsdamer Platz, about members of a New Jersey crime family looking to expand internationally.

Director Tony Scott ( The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3), is trying to also persuade Gene Hackman, the star of his Crimson Tide and Enemy of the State, to leave retirement for the film, claim rumors.

Next, Bardem will be seen in Eat Pray Love with Julie Roberts. Rourke and Statham will be in The Expendables with Sylvester Stallone, due August 13.

Scott is directing Unstoppable with Denzel Washington and Chris Pine ( Star Trek).

According to last Friday's Financial Times report, Scott and his brother Ridley may be interested in running a newly restructured MGM Studios.
