Clive Owen Set For Recall
He's having memory issues...

Clive Owen Set For Recall

Last seen trading insults, punches and bullets with Jason Statham in Killer Elite, Clive Owen shows no intentions of giving up on the action genre. He’s attached to star in Recall, which is now being touted at the American Film Market.

With a script by Paul Schrader, Recall sounds like gene-splice between Memento and any number of hostage drama films. It’ll find Owen as an NSA agent attempting to figure out what happened during a botched effort to rescue some prisoners. As his memory of the events slowly begins to return, he discovers there’s no one he can trust – not even HIS OWN BRAIN (cue dramatic organ music sting.)

Harold Becker, who last brought the world Mercury Rising and the distinctly dodgy Domestic Disturbance in 2001, is on board to direct. He’ll start shooting next March in Washington DC and Bulgaria.

Owen will next be seen in horror thriller Intruders, followed by terrorist drama Shadow Dancer and topical financial tale Cities.
