Colin Farrell Becomes More Saintly

Hellraising actor COLIN FARRELL is to take on an unlikely role in his next project - that of Irish patron saint ST PATRICK.

The INTERMISSION star - renowned for his womanising, drinking and drug-taking behaviour - will star in a $68 million (GBP40 million) biopic of the saint, who drove snakes out of the Emerald Isle.

Possible co-stars being lined up to appear alongside the 27-year-old include ANGELINA JOLIE, CAMERON DIAZ and fellow Irishmen PIERCE BROSNAN and LIAM NEESON.

Filming could begin in Ireland as early as next Spring (04).
