Robert DeNiro and others join Clive Owen and Jason Statham in The Killer Elite

The action flick THE KILLER ELITE is putting together an interesting cast -- besides the dual knuckle sandwiches and trigger fingers of Jason Statham and Clive Owen, the film will also feature veteran Robert DeNiro and delectable "Chuck" spychick Yvonne Strahovski, according to Moviehole.

The story is based on a book called "The Featherman", about a group of former special forces soldiers being targeted by assassins. Statham is a Navy SEAL who comes out of retirement to rescue his kidnapped mentor (DeNiro) and help his hunted chums in the thriller, currently shooting Down Under with commercial director Gary McKendry.

The movie will also feature Dominic Purcell ("Prison Break") and Aussie actors Aden Young, Firass Dirani, Ben Mendelsohn and Lachy Hulme, who is perhaps best known for being one of the earliest and repeated names supposedly "in the running" to play the Joker in THE DARK KNIGHT. (FYI - He didn't get the part.)

Extra Tidbit: Strahovski provided her voice to the videogame MASS EFFECT 2, along with Carrie-Anne Moss, Keith David, Adam Baldwin, Seth Green, Tricia Helfer and fellow Aussie gal Claudia Black.
