Don't you hate it when your daughter needs new lungs and your only recourse is to head down to Mexico for some spare parts? That's what's going to happen to Mr. Dermot Mulroney, who has recently signed on to star in an organ-harvest thriller called Run For Her Life.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Mulroney will play a district attorney whose daughter contracts a rare illness and needs new lungs. After discovering she's low on the official U.S. waiting list, he heads to Mexico to buy his way onto their list. But his ethical nature is put to the test when he has to choose between saving hundreds of children being killed for their organs or saving his daughter's life."

Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur will helm the flick, which begins shooting in New Mexico late next month. The screenplay comes from first-timer Christian Escario, with a re-write from John Claflin, whom you might remember from Fool's Gold and Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid. Or maybe not.

And good for Mulroney, says me. I've been a fan of the guy's work since Young Guns, and I hope that since his solid work in Zodiac, he's past the Must Love Dogs / Wedding Date portion of his career.
