We previously reported that Clive Owen is set to star in the upcoming adventure drama The Last Knights which comes from Japanese director Kazuaki Kiriya.
But today, we’re here to add another great name to this project, because we’ve just learned that Morgan Freeman is on board as well! If you ask me – revenge never looked better!
Kiriya directs the movie from a script written by Barney’s Version scribe Michael Konyves and at this moment we know that the whole thing will center on band of warriors who seek to avenge the loss of their master at the hands of a corrupt emperor.
That’s pretty much everything about the plot so far, but you must admit that it already sounds interesting. Just imagine Owen and Freeman in Feudal Japan for a moment. Ok, we all agree that’s not bad picture at all!
Production on The Last Knights should start later this month and filming will take place in the Czech Republic. In the meanwhile, both Owen and Freeman remain quite busy.
Owen is attached to reprise his role as Dwight McCarthy in the upcoming Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, while Freeman will star next to Tom Cruise in sci-fi movie Oblivion and he’s also on board for Louis Leterrier thriller Now You See Me.
As usual, with every new update on The Last Knights – we’ll be back!
