- THE COUP
Michelle Monaghan (Source Code, Gone Baby Gone) has joined Owen Wilson (Midnight in Paris, Wedding Crashers) and Pierce Brosnan (The Thomas Crown Affair, GoldenEye) in The Coup, a thriller centered on an American family which moves to Southeast Asia and finds themselves entangled in a violent coup with merciless rebels attacking the city. John Erick Dowdle (Devil; Quarantine) will direct from a script he co-wrote with his brother Drew Dowdle.
Monaghan will play Wilson’s wife, Annie, in the action thriller, which is scheduled to begin production in October.
The Dowdle brothers said: “Michelle is an exceptional actor who always brings a depth of compassion and warmth to her characters. She and Owen Wilson will be the kind of screen couple you just can't help but root for.”
