Clive Owen To Be One Of The Last Knights
Alongside Morgan Freeman

The last time Clive Owen picked up a sword – aside, that is from his turn as Sir Walter Raleigh in Elizabeth: The Golden Age – we got the underwhelming King Arthur. But we’re hoping for better things from his latest armoured turn, as he signs on to star alongside Morgan Freeman in The Last Knights.

Michael Konyves, who wrote Barney’s Version, has cooked up a script that finds a band of warriors looking to avenge the death of their master by hunting down a corrupt emperor and his forces.

Kazuaki Kiriya is handling directorial duties, and we’re already wondering whether it will be similar to the troubled Keanu Reeves pic 47 Ronin, which finds a band of Samurai looking to avenge the death of their master by hunting down a corrupt court official.

Luka Production International is backing this one, which should start filming this month in the Czech Republic, once a few more of the knights have been rounded up. It'll be interesting to see how a story like this plays out in a post-Game Of Thrones world.

Owen will next be seen in Blood Ties and is returning to the role of Dwight in Sin City sequel A Dame To Kill For. Freeman is even now filming oldie bachelor party comedy Last Vegas with Michael Douglas, Kevin Kline and Robert De Niro.
