Pierce Brosnan has signed up for the upcoming thriller The Coup, alongside Owen Wilson. That's right Owen Wilson is starring in a thriller!
The Coup tells the story of an American family who relocate to Southeast Asia, only to find themselves caught in the middle of, you guessed it, a coup. In a dangerous environment in which foreigners are being executed, they're forced to quickly find refuge.
John Erick Dowdle, who directed the 2010 M. Night Shyamalan-produced horror movie Devil, will helm Coup from his own co-written script. The movie is due out next year.
Former 007 Brosnan's most notable upcoming project is 2013's A Long Way Down, based on the Nick Hornby novel of the same name. Wilson, meanwhile, has, among other high-profile movies in the works, Freezing People Is Easy, just the second non-documentary from The Fog of War filmmaker Errol Morris.
