Clive Owen Could Be King Of The Castle
In a new comedy

25 October 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: LA Times

Clive Owen: comic god? It could happen. True, he can be charming, but he’s been serious a lot in movies. Writers Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka think they can bring out a different side of Owen, however, in a new pic called King Of The Castle.

The pair, who co-wrote Jonah Hill / David Gordon Green film The Sitter last year (and who have been working on the Baywatch movie), are making the leap to directing with the new pic.

If he locks in the lead, Owen will play a smooth philanderer whose latest seduction is caught on film by a teenager. You can guess what happens next… Blackmail!

It appears to still be fairly early days for the idea, as the LA Times has no details on filming or other cast members. But Margin Call production company Benaroya Pictures will back the film, so it does at least have financing in place.

Our only worry here? The Sitter wasn’t great and the writers have also been working on sitcom Animal Practice, which, despite a star turn from Hangover II’s simian actress Crystal, has just been cancelled in the States. Still, at least that means more time for them to work on the movie…
