Clive Owen / Anil Kapoor

Back in 2008 he worked with Jason Statham for the period heist flick The Bank Job, but now director Roger Donaldson will be making a film about getting cash without having to rob a bank and with another British actor. THR has news out of Cannes that Donaldson will team with Clive Owen for the financial thriller Cities, a story described as a cautionary tale about greed and ambition that takes place on a global scale in three colliding story lines set in the exuberant months leading up to the Dow Jones all-time stock market high. In addition, Slumdog Millionaire star Anil Kapoor has also snagged a role in the film.

The three aforementioned stories involve a New York-based hedge fund manager (Owen) who has plenty of money, sex and power, but he wants more, a young couple in London that just wants to buy their first home and Mumbai cop fights against corruption between property speculators and his colleagues, and that's where Kapoor's character comes into play. Donaldson also co-write the script Donaldson from an original script titled Extreme Cities, written by Glenn Wilhide. The project will be shopped around at the Cannes Film Market when the festival begins later this month, and production expected to being in October. As someone who enjoyed The Bank Job, I think this is something that could be rather enjoyable. How about you?
