Pair to star in action adventure.

Screen Daily is reporting that Japanese filmmaker Kazuaki Kiriya (‘The Legend of Goemon’) is set to direct Morgan Freeman (‘Now You See Me,’ ‘The Dark Knight Rises’) and Clive Owen (‘Shadow Dancer,’ ‘Intruders’) in the action adventure ‘The Last Knights.’

With a screenplay by ‘Barney’s Version’ screenwriter Michael Konyves, the story centres on “a band of warriors who seek to avenge the loss of their master at the hands of a corrupt emperor.”

Luci Kim of Luka Production International is producing along with Route One Film’s Jay Stern. Russell Levine and Chip Diggins are on board serving as executive producers. The producers are hoping to kick off filming this month in the Czech Republic.
