Clive Owen is attached to Cartagena, a story about an undercover agent amid Colombian drug cartels, says The Hollywood Reporter. The project is at Mark Cuban’s 2929 Productions.
Michael Ross, who penned the Fox Atomic horror pic Turistas and recently was signed to Overture’s remake of Icelandic thriller Jar City, has been attached to write the screenplay.
Cartagena centers on an undercover agent who gets caught in a complex plot and must elude drug dealers and international agents if he hopes to survive. The project is named for a city on Colombia’s northern coast that has a colorful history featuring wars, robust economic activity and tourist development.
