Variety is reporting that Clive Owen will star opposite Jason Statham in The Killer Elite, a film adaptation of the 1993 fact-based thriller The Feather Men by Ranulph Fiennes.
The project was announced a year ago at Cannes, with filming now expected to begin in Australia in May.
About The Feather Men (from the publisher): This adventure story, based on fact, tells the story of two secret organizations. One, the clinic, consisting a group of contract killers, and the other, the feathermen, an elite group of vigilantes drawn from the ranks of England's select paramilitary operatives, who were charged with eliminating the contract killers who are so deft that their hits appeared to be merely accidents.
