Owen is International

04.16.2007

Clive Owen may have repeatedly turned down the role of James Bond in CASINO ROYALE but that doesn't mean he's against playing a secret agent. Owen has signed on to star in the Sony/Columbia action-thriller THE INTERNATIONAL as a Interpol agent investigating corruption at banking institutions (doesn't it sound like a spinoff of the classic Christopher Walken "SNL" skit "The Continental"?). Colubmia has been developing the film since 2004 and it's unclear what the eff took so long. Directing the film is Tom Twyker (RUN LOLA RUN) with John Woo producing. Filming is scheduled to begin this September, which would officially make it his next project. Owen can be seen later this year in SHOOT 'EM UP and the ELIZABETH sequel THE GOLDEN AGE for Universal.

Extra Tidbit: One of Owen's early roles was providing a voiceover for one of the "Wing Commander" video games.
