Well, here's a pairing of actors in a genre movie that we weren't expecting at all. And not only that, it's going to start shooting very soon...

Morgan Freeman and Clive Owen are to set to star in "The Last Knights." Penned by Michael Konyves ("Barney's Version") the film will be directed by Japanese filmmaker Kazuaki Kiriya ("The Legend of Goemon"), and tell the tale of "a band of warriors who seek to avenge the loss of their master at the hands of a corrupt emperor." No word yet on their roles, but again, Freeman and Owen? Okay. Production is supposed to start later this month, so either this is an easy paycheck or some really good material or maybe just something in between. But yeah, we're indeed curious.

Here's the interesting thing though: filming will take place in the Czech Republic. Why does that matter? Well, Robert Rodriguez has already started shooting "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," and Owen's involvement still remains up in the air. Recent trade reports suggest he is expected to take a role wherein his character Dwight's face gets literally rearranged, with another actor said to be taking over the part once that happens. So perhaps his appearance will be brief, and Rodriguez's green screen and quick shooting style means Owen won't be needed too long on set in Austin anyway. So we'll see how it plays out.
