We reported last May that Jason Statham was starring in a new action film and now the cast has grown by one more. Variety is reporting that Clive Owen has joined Statham on the film The Killer Elite.

The film centers on a group of British former special forces soldiers who become hunted by a team of ruthless assassins, lead by Statham's character. It was said that Owen would play a top field agent for a spy organization that protects the British soldiers and their families.

Gary McKendrick is directing the film, which will start production in Australia on May 13. The film will shoot there until July, when the production will then move to Wales.
