Watts joins Owen

Naomi Watts is just weeks away from giving birth to her first child but when she's done, she's looking to get right into kicking ass. Watts has signed on to co-star with Clive Owen in the upcoming action-thriller THE INTERNATIONAL. In the film Owen and Watts will play an Interpol agent and Manhattan DA, respectively, who team up to take down a high-profile banking institution that's involved in corruption and murder. Tom Tykwer (RUN LOLA RUN) will direct the film for Columbia from a script by Eric Singer. Watts has been straight up cold lampin' since getting pregnant through boyfriend and fellow actor Liev Schrieber. But now that baby Liomi is almost here, the actress is working on her upcoming schedule. She's also attached to star in the AIDS film WE ARE ALL THE SAME. Watts can be seen later this year in David Cronenberg's EASTERN PROMISES and has the thriller FUNNY GAMES due in January.

Extra Tidbit: Watts and Schrieber told reports at the Tony Awards they had gotten married but later admitted it was just a joke.
