Cillian Murphy will star opposite Tim Roth in the film Broken, to be scripted by Irishman, Mark O'Rowe - who last penned the Murphy starrer, Perrier's Bounty.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film centres on a young North London girl who witnesses a violent attack which brings chaos to her life. Newcomer Eloise Laurence will play the young girl, while theatre director Rufus Norris will helm what appears to be his first feature film.

O'Rowe has also written the hit Colin Farrell flick Intermission and Boy A. Murphy will next be seen in In Time, opposite Justin Timberlake.
