The Coup Movie starring Pierce Brosnan and Owen Wilson

I’ve just spotted those pictures from the set of The Coup, the upcoming thriller movie written and directed by John Erick Dowdle and starring Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan, Lake Bell, Sterling Jerins, Spencer Garrett, Sahajak Boonthanakit, Byron Gibson, and Claire Geare:

“A young family who relocate from America to South East Asia only to find themselves caught up in the middle of a violent revolution. As the situation intensifies and as foreigners around them are being imprisoned and executed, the family is soon forced to seek refuge. Own Wilson and Lake Bell play the roles of the American husband and wife, while Pierce Brosnan is the heroic US government official.”

The plot synopsis doesn’t reveal in what country the story takes place, but that last picture with the propaganda poster hints the story is actually set in Vietnam. The film was filmed in Thailand though where ironically a military coup did happen a few months ago.

Anyway, glad to see that Pierce Brosnan will once again save the day!

The release date of The Coup is set to March 6, 2015.
