Julia Roberts and Clive Owen reunite as lovers in 'Duplicity', a drama thriller about two once romantically involved spies planning an elaborate scheme against each other for their companies.
What happens if two expert spies with romantic history have to throw out dirty schemes against each other to secure a medical innovation that will reap huge profits? The answers will be found through a brand new trailer of "Duplicity". Letting out the first look into another collaboration of Julia Roberts and Clive Owen since "Closer", the trailer gives a taste to what to expect from the drama thriller.
Claire Stenwick is a former CIA officer, while Ray Koval is an ex-MI6 agent. Expert spies in their fields, they are now working at two rival multinational corporations. When their companies are battling to be the first to patent the formula for a product, they are forced to get dirty with their tactics. And as they each try to stay one double-cross ahead, two career loners find their schemes endangered by the only thing they can't cheat their way out of: love.
"Duplicity" is directed and scripted by Tony Gilroy, the filmmaker behind Academy Award-nominated legal thriller "Michael Clayton". This Universal Pictures movie is also supported by Tom Wilkinson, Paul Giamatti, Carrie Preston and others. It has been set for U.S. release on March 20, 2009.
