You never know where you’ll see Clive Owen next.
He might be best known for portraying tough guys not afraid to get their hands dirty in films such as “Children of Men,” “Sin City” and “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead.” But the ruggedly handsome actor has also played the sensitive father in movies such as “The Boys Are Back” and his latest, in limited release now, “Trust.” He’s been leading man in more traditional thrillers “The International” and “Duplicity.” He can suit up in period costume, as he proved in “King Arthur” and “Elizabeth: The Golden Age.” And he got an Oscar nomination for playing the foul-mouthed dermatologist Larry in the gripping emotional drama “Closer.”
He might have been typecast from the get-go. He first came to Hollywood’s attention, after a successful run on British television, with Mike Hodges’ film “Croupier,” in which he played the title character, an aspiring novelist whose job at a casino introduces him to the underworld. It didn’t take long for him to become — in the public’s mind, at least — the leading candidate for the new James Bond. [Read more…] about Clive Owen: An actor who puts art above money
Clive Owen and Andrea Riseborough are to star in the new film by James Marsh, the Oscar-winning documentary maker of Man on Wire.
The versatile director is to tackle an IRA espionage thriller for his next feature film, having previously directed Gael García Bernal and Paul Dano in The King. The untitled project was previously known as Shadow Dancer (the title of the Tom Bradby novel it’s based on), but is currently inbetween titles, Marsh told NY Mag.
He confirmed the casting of Owen and Riseborough, the rising British actress who’s appeared in Made In Dagenham, Never Let Me Go and Brighton Rock. They replace Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall, who were attached to the film last November. Also joining the cast are Queer as Folk and The Wire star Aidan Gillen, currently scaring us to death in superb horror Wake Wood, and X-Files legend Gillian Anderson.
Marsh revealed that the film will be similar to his stint on the Red Riding Trilogy (the 1980 part): “It’s a genre film, it’s a thriller. It’s very exciting to be doing something like that now, to have that kind of canvas to fill.”
Centered around the peace process in Northern Ireland in the Nineties, Riseborough will play a former IRA terrorist forced to turn informer, and Owen will play her MI5 handler. Filming will begin in Dublin this May.
Marsh’s next documentary Proejct Nim, about a chimpanzee taught to live as a human in the Seventies, will be released this year.

- (x013) Hemingway & Gellhorn: Filming – April 4, 2011
The film is based on the novel ‘Shadow Dancer’ by Tom Bradby, and will be helmed by ‘Man On Wire’ director James Marsh, reports website Movieweb.
Marsh told the site: “It’s a genre film, it’s a thriller. It’s very exciting to be doing something like that now, to have that kind of canvas to fill.”
Andrea Riseborough will play the female lead – former IRA terrorist turned MI5 informer Colette McVeigh.
Also starring in the movie will be ‘Love/Hate’ actor Aidan Gillen and ‘X Files’ actress Gillian Anderson.
‘Shadow Dancer’ will begin production in and around Dublin in May, although it is likely to be released with a different title.
Marsh said: “It’s sort of between titles right now. I don’t think it’s quite the right title. It sounds a bit like Billy Elliot or something like that.”
