Oscar Isaac and Jason Clarke cast in William Monahan's MOJAVE

William Monahan is wrapping up his 2012 on a high. Last week the director was hired to pen the Charlize Theron-starring remake of Park Chan-wook's "Sympathy For Lady Vengeance," and now his own directorial effort has landed two great actors to star.

Oscar Isaac ("Drive," "The Bourne Legacy," "Inside Llewyn Davis") and Jason Clarke ("Zero Dark Thirty," "Lawless," "The Great Gatsby") will star in the thriller "Mojave." Plot details seem to be under wraps at the moment, but last fall, the writer/director did tell us that it was "an original thriller...set in Los Angeles." And while we're curious to hear what it's all about, Monahan couldn't have asked for two better leads. Both are talents that are definitely on the rise with bigger and better things on this horizon, and this certainly seems to be one of them. So a solid start for "Mojave."

And hopefully we'll know more soon. Production is aiming to kick off in the first quarter of 2013.
