Pop Goes The News — Amanda Seyfried and Clive Owen are returning to Toronto this summer to shoot the thriller Anon.
Both stars have made movies in the city before — Seyfried was in 2009’s Chloe and Owen was in 2007’s Shoot ‘Em Up.
Seyfried, 30, and Owen, 51, have also been guests at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Anon will be directed by New Zealand filmmaker Andrew Niccol, whose credits include 1997’s Gattaca and last year’s Good Kill — both starring Ethan Hawke.
Cameras are scheduled to roll from July 11 to Aug. 28.
Niccol previously directed Seyfried in 2011’s In Time.
In Anon, Owen plays a detective in a society devoid of privacy and anonymity, where crime has seemingly been eliminated. This all changes when he meets a young woman (Seyfried) who is untraceable by police.
Seyfried, who will be seen in the Twin Peaks reboot, recently starred in Ted 2 and Pan. Her credits include 2008’s Mamma Mia! and 2012’s Les Misérables.
She made the erotic thriller Chloe in Toronto for Canadian director Atom Egoyan with co-stars Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson.
Owen, who stars in The Knick, is best known for his roles in 2006’s Children of Men and 2002’s The Bourne Identity. He starred opposite Monica Bellucci in the made-in-Toronto crime caper Shoot ‘Em Up.
