Producer Marc Abraham and Clive Owen will continue their collaboration after "Children of Men" in an untitled feature about fictional detective Philip Marlowe.
Apparently well-satisfied with their recent collaboration in "Children of Men", producer Marc Abraham and Clive Owen are re-teaming for another big screen feature based on one of Raymond Chandler's detective short stories, The Courier-Journal has learned.
While Abraham will definitely seat as the project's producer via his Strike Entertainment, Owen is likely to portray the leading character of private detective Philip Marlowe. Names to either write the script or direct have not yet been known, though.
The story of Marlowe previously was announced by ABC in December 2006 to be brought into the small screen with Sean Bailey producing. Simply titled "Marlowe", the hour-long drama, however, is said to not use Chandler's Marlowe books as the source material for storylines.
