Clive Owen is slated to star in Blue Angel, a film about a disillusioned college professor who once again finds hope in a gifted young female writing student.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the film will be written and directed by Nip/Tuck showrunner Richard Levine and produced by Lars Knudsen and Jan Van Hoy of Parts & Labor. K5 International has recently signed on to the project on behalf of international sales, while CAA represents North American rights.
According to K5 Founders Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur, who also negotiated the film deal on behalf of K5, Clive Owen is “the perfect fit” for the role of an intelligent and jaded man "who should know better, finding himself hopelessly caught between seduction and manipulation," HR reported.
Blue Angel is adapted from Francine Prose’s novel of the same name, which was first published back in 2000.
The film is described as “a psychological roller coaster ride between sex, seduction and emotional manipulation,” Variety reports.
