Owen, Crudup, Kunis Make “Blood Ties”

Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Mila Kunis and James Caan are set to star in Guillaume Canet’s 1970’s-set crime thriller “Blood Ties” says Heat Vision.

Zoe Saldana and Marion Cotillard are already set while Matthias Schoenaerts (“Bullhead”) has an offer for a role in the film which Canet and James Gray co-wrote the script for.

An adaptation of the French novel “Les liens du sang”, the story centers on a younger brother (Crudup) who has to ask his convict older brother (Owen) to go back into the underworld to help out the family.

Kunis and Cotillard play love interests. Shooting aims to kick off this April in New York.
