Some sort of '70s themed fashion photoshoot featuring Clive Owen and Mila Kunis? Not quite. The duo are actually spotted here complete with sideburns and bell-bottoms shooting Guillaume Canet's highly anticipated period crime pic/family drama "Blood Ties."
A remake of 2008 French thriller "Les Liens Du Sang" which Canet starred in, the James Gray co-scripted story is set off as the younger of two brothers (Crudup) is asked by his older brother (Owen) to return to the underworld in order to help the family out. Kunis plays the older brother's partner while Cotillard couples up with Crudup.
As promising as the leading quartet and helmer are, the rest of the cast Canet has assembled is equally impressive with Zoe Saldana, James Caan, Noah Emmerich, Matthias Schoenaerts, Lili Taylor and Domenick Lombardozzi making up the director's English-language debut. It doesn't end there either with Jamie Hector ("The Wire"), Angelica Boccelia and Austin Williams rounding things out -- no word on who Beccelia and Hector will play though Williams has been cast as a the younger version of Owen's character.
