Clive Owen and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) are to team up in the thriller Intruders, the newest film from 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. Fresnadillo has been developing an adaptation of the popular video game Bioshock for quite a while now. It seems like Intruders will now take precedent over that. I don’t understand why, as video game adaptations always do so well! (See: Hitman, Street Fighter, Super Mario Bros., Tomb Raider, and every other video game adaptation… ever).
Details on the movie are being kept tightly under wraps. All we know, according to THR, is that the movie “revolves around an 11-year-old girl who is forced to confront childhood demons.” Owen, unfortunately, will not be playing the 11-year-old girl. He is set to play the father, while the casting for the girl has not yet been released.
Production plans to get underway this June in Madrid and London, so I imagine we should be hearing more details about this as we get closer to shooting.
I don’t understand why they are being so secretive about the plot of a movie like this. I can only hope that it has something to do with Pedobear showing up. What? One can only speculate what “childhood demons” means…
What do you think? Will this bring back the bad-ass Clive Owen we love?
