Ewan McGregor is one of my favorite actors to see on screen. Even when a film he is involved with is considered a 'miss', I still usually have a damn good time. Fortunately for me, McGregor has a whole slew of films that he is working on including the latest addition to his to-do list, The Tourist.
Ewan McGregor for The Tourist
According to Production Weekly, Ewan McGregor is set to star opposite Hugh Jackman in Swiss director Marcel Langenegger's The Tourist.
In the script by Mark Bomback (Constantine), Patrick Marber (Closer) and Jason Keller, McGregor portrays Jonathan, an accountant disconnected from life, who is reinvigorated by his new friend Wyatt (Jackman), a powerful and charismatic lawyer who introduces Jonathan to a mysterious sex club known as The List. Shortly after meeting the woman of his dream, Jonathan becomes the number one suspect in not only the woman's disappearance and possible murder but also a 20 million dollar theft.
Production for The Tourist is scheduled to begin on October 9th in New York City.
