Clive Owen takes a break before next project
20/1/2007 11:22

British actor Clive Owen is taking a break before deciding his next project as two films he is starring in are due out this year, he told the media.

"I don't actually know, I'm taking a bit of time off and I haven't decided what I'm doing next," the 42-year-old actor said after watching Giorgio Armani's menswear collection Wednesday.

"I've got a couple in the can that are still to come out this year," he added.

"There's a very wild action movie called 'Shoot Em Up' and then a film called 'Golden Age,' a sort of sequel to (director) Shekhar Kapur's 'Elizabeth,'" said the dark-haired star, who was once rumored to be in the running to play James Bond.

In Kapur's "The Golden Age," Owen plays 16th century adventurer Sir Walter Raleigh opposite Australian actress Cate Blanchett. She again plays Queen Elizabeth I as she balances the demands of power and the threat of Spain's Armada against her feelings for Raleigh.

"Shoot 'Em Up" stars Monica Bellucci with Owen and is billed as a violent thriller. Michael Davis is the director.
