Owen Wilson is Back in Action Mode in 'No Escape' Thriller Trailer
Though many know Owen Wilson for his more comedic roles in films like Wedding Crashers, earlier in his career he took on a variety of films from Behind Enemy Lines to The Haunting, and two of his earliest films were Armageddon and Anaconda. Now Wilson is getting back into action thriller territory with No Escape (formerly known as The Coup), the story of a man who finds himself and his family threatened in the middle of a political uprising just after moving to Southeast Asia. Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell also star in the film which looks pretty intense, and might open some new doors for Wilson in other genres again. Watch!
