HOLLYWOOD star Clive Owen (Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Bourne Identity) was in Hendon yesterday making last-minute preparations for the new Scott Hicks’ movie The Boys Are Back.
iThe $18.5 million production – the biggest SA movie directed by a local – starts principle photography on Monday

The production offices in the old Tytronics building were a hive of activity gearing up for the eight-week shoot.
The Boys Are Back producer Tim White revealed the production would inject about $10 million in to the SA economy. [Read more…] about Clive Owen lends Hicks a hand
A sequel to Spike Lee’s “Inside Man” is moving forward at Universal, with Terry George in negotiations to write the screenplay and Lee coming back to direct the Brian Grazer-produced pic.
“Inside Man 2,” as the project is tentatively being called, will pick up on the characters and dynamic but not the storyline of the original. The first “Inside Man,” which was penned by Russell Gewirtz, centered on a standoff between a bank robber (Clive Owens) and a hostage negotiator (Denzel Washington) at a New York bank.
Lee says he foresees that the new film will continue the relationship between the two main characters but in a new high-tension situation. “I want the script to be even better than Russell’s, and Russell wrote a really good script,” he said.
The news cements long-floating rumors that Universal was looking to reprise the alchemy of the indie fave Lee with the studio budget and marketing apparatus of Universal.
The original “Inside Man,” also from Universal, scored Lee his biggest opening weekend, and went on to earn more than $175 million worldwide when it was released in the spring of 2006.
Grazer will produce “Inside Man 2” via his Imagine Entertainment banner, with Lee and Daniel Rosenberg exec producing.
Denzel Washington and Clive Owen are interested in re-teaming for the project, Lee said, speaking from the Toronto International Film Festival, where he was in town to promote the Babelgum Online Film Festival as well as his upcoming WWII pic “Miracle at St. Anna.”
The Endeavor-repped George is the writer-director of prestige dramas such as “Hotel Rwanda” and the scribe on “In the Name of the Father.”

Acclaimed film director Scott Hicks has signed a deal to shoot and produce his next feature film in South Australia.
Hicks said the film, The Boys Are Back, would be shot largely in the wine growing area south of Adelaide, with work due to start in September.
Academy Award nominated British actor Clive Owen will take the lead role as journalist Joe Warr.
Hicks said he originally planned to make the film in Queensland but shifted production to South Australia following a $1 million investment from the South Australian government.
“I’m looking forward to showing the splendour of the Fleurieu (peninsula) to the wider world in the context of this powerful and emotional drama,” Hicks said.
The $18 million dollar The Boys Are Back will be Hicks’s first major film shot in Australia for about a decade.
Hicks gained international acclaim for the 1996 film Shine, which was nominated for seven Academy Awards, with Hicks receiving nominations for director and screenplay.
Like many of the characters he plays, Clive Owen was reserved, astute and insightful throughout his public appearance at the Apple store in downtown Manhattan on Friday. Interviewed by American Psycho director Mary Harron as a part of a series of conversations co-hosted by Apple and indieWIRE, taking place during the Tribeca Film Festival, Owen touched on two of his recent projects while fielding broad questions about his professional interests.
Although not currently starring in any theatrical releases, Owen was in town performing opposite Julia Roberts in the corporate spy thriller Duplicity, the sophomore feature from Michael Clayton director Tony Gilroy (a special guest at the store the following night). “I read the script and thought it was brilliant,” Owen said, adding that shooting was halfway done. “I’d met Tony already, and he screened Michael Clayton for me. Obviously, when I saw that, it was a no-brainer.” Meanwhile, Owen has another thriller in his queue: He plays an Interpol agent fighting global arms dealing in The International, which finished shooting in New York last January and hits theaters next year. Directed by Run Lola Run visionary Tom Tykwer, The International has provided Owen with “as good a director as I’ve ever come across. He’s incredibly on top of every aspect of filmmaking.” [Read more…] about Clive Owen Talks ‘Duplicity,’ ‘International,’ and Career Options
