September 2008 will see the release of Tom Twyker's latest film, THE INTERNATIONAL, starring Clive Owen, Naomi Watts and Armin Mueller-Stahl (the latter hugely impressive in Cronenberg's EASTERN PROMISES). The film is being billed as a throwback to those wonderful political thrillers of the 70s, with Owen taking the role of an obsessive Interpol agent who is convinced a series of murders and disappearances can be traced to the world's 3rd biggest bank. With Watts' assistant DA in tow, Owen follows the money trail to Istanbul, Milan, New York and Berlin, aiming to establish a link between high finance and illegal arms trading. We're promised 5 huge set-pieces, which I trust will compliment an engrossing story. Look out for this one in the Autumn.
