Diane Kruger making a 'Run'

Lands lead in new thriller opposite Dermot Mulroney

"National Treasure's" Diane Kruger has landed the female lead opposite Dermot Mulroney in Baltasar Kormakur's thriller "Run for Her Life."

Kruger and Mulroney play parents who attempt to get a lung transplant for their dying daughter in Mexico. But after agreeing to the operation, they face an ethical dilemma after discovering that the organs aren't taken from willing donors.

Nathalie Marciano and Michelle Chydzik Sowa of 26 Films, which produced Nia Vardalos' upcoming comedy "My Life in Ruins," and Jennifer Kelly are producing the feature, set for a New Mexico shoot.

Kruger is repped by ICM and manager Abi Harris.
