What a little war movie can do to a career. Colin Farrell, who got on the Hollywood radar with his performance in the war flick "Tigerland," has signed on to star in not one but two projects, Daily Variety says.

Farrell will first headline the drama "Phone Booth" for his "Tigerland" director, Joel Schumacher, in November. And then he'll segue to a courtroom drama flick, "Hart's War," where he'll play a POW who must defend a black soldier for murder.

The actor got the part in "War" after Edward Norton bailed on the project. The stellar cast for the film includes Bruce Willis and possibly Anthony Hopkins.

TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME: The Hollywood Reporter says that Dennis Quaid might star in the Disney flick "The Rookie." Based on a true story, the film is about a high school baseball coach (Quaid) who makes the major leagues at age 35.

SOLDIERING ON: Ed Harris will play opposite Joaquin Phoenix in the dark comedy "Buffalo Soldiers," the Reporter says. Based on Robert O'Connor's cult novel of the same name, the film follows a group of young U.S. soldiers in West Germany during the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
