Last week we reported that Clive Owen had signed onto a new action film and it seems another cast member has been added as well. Variety is reporting that former Prison Break star Dominic Purcell has joined the cast of The Killer Elite.

Purcell joins Owen and Jason Statham in the film, which follows a highly-trained group of British special forces members who are stalked by a team of assassins. It wasn't quite clear what role Purcell would play, but our earlier report revealed that Statham would be the leader of the team hunting the British operatives while Owen would play a British agent who tries to protect the special forces soldiers and their families.

Gary McKendry is directing the film from a script he co-wrote with Matt Sherring. The film will start production next month.
