Clive Owen has signed on for “Gattaca” and “Simone” director Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi psychological thriller “Anon”.
Owen plays a detective in the film which is set in a world with no privacy, ignorance and anonymity – meaning there’s no crime. When he stumbles on a young woman who doesn’t exist, he discovers it may not be the end of crime but the beginning.
Further casting is expected to be announced in coming weeks. Niccol, Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur will produce. Owen is currently filming the sci-fi fantasy tale “Valerian”.
