Clive Owen Boards Andrew Niccol’s Sci-fi Thriller ‘Anon’

LONDON — Clive Owen has boarded sci-fi thriller “Anon,” which is written and directed by Andrew Niccol, whose writing credits include Peter Weir’s “The Truman Show” and Steven Spielberg’s “The Terminal.”

Owen plays a detective in the psychological thriller set in a world with no privacy, ignorance and anonymity. It’s the end of crime. However, when Owen’s character stumbles on a young woman who doesn’t exist, he discovers it may not be the end of crime but the beginning.

The production is in the process of casting the anonymous young woman and is looking to announce within the coming weeks.

The film is produced by Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur at K5 Film and Niccol. CAA packaged the film and will represent its U.S. distribution rights.

Owen is also starring in Luc Besson’s sci-fi fantasy film “Valerian,” which is shooting. His most recent major TV credit, Steven Soderbergh’s “The Knick,” is in its second season on Cinemax.

Niccol’s directing credits include “Lord of War,” starring Nicolas Cage and Ethan Hawk, and “Good Kill,” also starring Hawke.

K5 recently announced it is producing and selling Jim Jarmusch’s “Paterson,” starring Adam Driver (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”) and Golshifthe Farahani (“About Elly”).
