“The Coup” set to star Owen Wilson opposite Pierce Brosnan, originally slated an October 2012 filming date, which never came to light. Now, Bold Films is being backed by Comerica Bank and is scheduled to begin filming in Thailand in November of this year. The Coup is an action story that follows an American businessman (Wilson) in a third-world country that gets caught up with his family in a violent revolution and ends up being hunted by a murderous rebel leader. The Coup is written by brothers Drew and John Erick Dowdle (who is also directing), and Gary Michael Walters will serve as executive producer. This will be the first action film that Owen Wilson has starred in since the military thriller, Behind Enemy Lines.
