Fraser lands lead in thriller

Brendan Fraser is set to star in 'Split Decisions'.

The 'Bedazzled' actor will play the lead in Damian Lee's action-thriller as a father who defends his two children from murderers.

The storyline sees the two children (Holly Deveaux and Christian Martin) witness a brutal killing during a camping trip, prompting the two murderous brothers who committed the crime ('Prison Break's Dominic Purcell and 'American History X' star Ethan Suplee) to hunt them down in an attempt to silence them. Brave father Brendan will step in to rescue them in the fast-paced flick.

The 43-year-old star will also produce along with Bill Marks and Gary Howsam, with Jeff Sackman as executive producer.

Brendan is best known for his roles in 'The Mummy' and 'The Journey To The Centre Of The Earth'.

He is currently embroiled in a legal battle with 'The Legend of William Tell' producer Todd Moyer, who is demanding $25,000 compensation after alleging that Brendan physically assaulted him twice.

Brendan sued Todd in May, claiming he has ruined the film and caused delays that forced Brendan to miss out on other work. He is seeking $3 million in damages.
