Clive Owen has joined Rebecca Miller’s upcoming romantic comedy, Maggie’s Plan. The actor will star alongside Greta Gerwig and Julianne Moore, who were attached back in January. Set to shoot in New York later this year, the film will follow a woman “who ends up in a complicated relationship while trying to make her way in the Big Apple.”
That’s a pretty vague synopsis, unfortunately, but the trio of talent that’s been put into place to star is more than enough to get our interest piqued. As for who Owen will play, he’ll take on the role of John, a man who finds himself caught in an unusual love triangle, presumably involving Gerwig and Moore’s characters.
While there’s not much to go on here, as I mentioned above, Owen, Gerwig and Moore make for a charming cast, one that should fit this romantic comedy quite well. Add to that Miller’s decent track record (among other things, she penned the underrated Proof and directed The Ballad of Jack and Rose, which I thought showed promise despite being a bit contrived and disjoined), and you have the potential for a perfectly pleasing entry into the genre.
