Clive Owen (‘The Knick,’ ‘Sin City’) has signed on for ‘Gattaca’ and ‘Good Kill’ writer/director Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi psychological thriller ‘Anon.’

The film sees Owen taking on the role of a detective “in a world with no privacy, ignorance and anonymity. It’s the end of crime. However, when the detective stumbles on a young woman who doesn’t exist, he discovers it may not be the end of crime but the beginning.”7

Niccol will also serve as producer alongside Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur of K5 Film. Owen is currently filming Luc Besson’s sci-fi fantasy adventure ‘Valerian’ opposite Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, and Ethan Hawke.
