Clive Owen is set to star in Recall, an action movie that centers on an NSA officer investigating how a hostage-rescue operation went awry. Over the course of his inquiry, the agent discovers he "can trust neither his fellow soldiers nor his own mind," according to Variety. If it sounds a little like a Bourne retread, have a little faith: Recall is from writer Paul Schrader, whose other credits include Raging Bull, The Last Temptation of Christ, and Taxi Driver. The guy knows his way around tortured souls with warped perceptions of the world. And Clive Owen can snarl through an action movie like a real champ.
