Clive Owen and Billy Crudup are set to lead Guillaume Canet‘s crime thriller Blood Ties.  Based off the French novel Les liens du sang, Canet’s English-language debut “centers on a younger brother (Crudup) who has to ask his convict older brother (Owen) to go back into the underworld to help out the family.”  As we reported back in November, Mark Wahlberg, Zoe Saldana, and Marion Cotillard were circling the picture.  In addition to the casting news regarding Owen and Crudup, THR reports that Saldana and Cotillard have signed on along with Mila Kunis and James Caan.  Kunis and Cotillard will play love interests.  Bullhead star Matthias Schoenaerts has been offered role, and if he signs on, this cast will be even more impressive.

Canet co-wrote the script for Blood Ties with We Own the Night writer-director James Gray.  For those unfamiliar with Canet, I strongly recommend checking out this 2006 mystery flick Tell No One.  If the financing on Blood Ties comes together, filming will begin in April in New York.
