    Roberts & Owen Get Closer For Duplicity

    Julia Roberts and Clive Owen are set to star in "Duplicity," a Universal Pictures drama that was written and will be directed by Tony Gilroy, reports Variety.

    Roberts and Owen are re-teaming after pairing in the Mike Nichols-directed "Closer," in which they played a married couple that clashed over her infidelity.

    "Duplicity" offers the chance for the same kind of sparks in a caper pic set in the world of big business. They play longtime lovers who happened to work as spies on opposite sides. They team up to stage an elaborate con to rip off corporations and steal a valuable product.

    The film will begin production in March, and is Gilroy's second directing effort following the George Clooney-starrer "Michael Clayton." Gilroy previously wrote three "Bourne Identity" films for Universal.

    Roberts will next be seen starring with Tom Hanks and Philip Seymour Hoffman in the Nichols-directed "Charlie Wilson's War." Owen, who just opened in "Elizabeth: The Golden Age," takes the job after starring in the Tom Tykwer-directed "The International."

    Billy Bob Thornton and Tom Wilkinson are set to star with Julia Roberts and Clive Owen[​IMG] in Duplicity, the Universal Pictures drama written and to be directed by Tony Gilroy. Laura Bickford is producing.

    Wilkinson reteams with Gilroy right after he received a supporting actor Oscar nomination for the Gilroy-directed Michael Clayton.

    Thornton and Wilkinson will play the CEOs of rival pharmaceutical companies racing to corner the market on an innovation that will bring wild profits. Roberts and Owen play corporate spies who try to manipulate which corporation will win.

    Clive Owen? Cool mother****er. Tom Wilkinson? Good actor. Julia Roberts? Hate her guts. Story sounds boring to, but I'll wait for a trailer, cause I'm interested in anything that stars Clive Owen.

    Heard about Giamatti. He has had a shockingly raw and realistic role as John Adams, and I love that. And I love him as an actor. Great choice. :up:

    Clive Owen should pick better films, this one looks just as uninteresting and bland as The International.

    I like Owen, but I can't stand Roberts, and this looks like more of her typical 1D lame-ass romantic comedy crap mixed with a softened spy flick...I thought Mr. and Mrs. Smith was horrible and this sort of reminds me of that.

    I'll probably skip it.

    I'l see it. I liked Michael Clayton. I'm fan of Owen and Wilkinson.

    + I highly enjoyed the last Owen/Roberts collaboration, Closer. Though mainly because of Portman and Owen.
