Owen has Children

04.28.2005

Clive Owen has signed on to star in the futuristic thriller CHILDREN OF MEN for director Alfonso Cuaron. The film is set in a near future where the human race has lost its ability to reproduce (males have become sterile) and England has descended into chaos until a strict warden, Xan Lyppiatt, is brought in to institute martial law. That order is challenged however, when a woman discovers she's pregnant, with what would be the first child in 27 years, inspiring a group of revolutionaries. Owen will star as an ex-radical and current Oxford history professor, Theodore Faron, who is her ex-lover (and Xan's cousin) who may also be the baby's father. The film has been in development since 2001 and was once expected to go before cameras in 2003. Cuaron's involvement with HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN changed that and now the adaptation of PD James's novel is back on track. Cuaron wrote the current draft of the script with partners Timothy Sexton and David Arata. Owen can be seen next alongside Jennifer Aniston in the romantic thriller DERAILED and is set to begin shooting on THE INSIDE MAN with Denzel Washington in June.
