Clive Owen and Frank Miller must have left one hell of an impression on one another during production of Sin City. Getting back behind the camera, Frank Miller will team with Clive Owen for Trouble Is My Business.

Frank Miller, Clive Owen Reunite for Trouble Is My Business

Under the reigns of Universal Pictures, Miller will direct the adaptation of the Raymond Chandler novel, Trouble Is My Business, as a starring vehicle for Clive Owen.

Trouble Is My Business was chosen partly because it provides the actor with a similar chance to frame the narrative with a compelling voiceover, using Chandler's hardboiled prose as hard-drinking private eye Philip Marlowe cracks cases, busts heads and romances femme fatales in 1940s Los Angeles.

Chandler has a long history of having his novels adapted for the bigscreen.

"Frank Miller knows more about noir than anyone I have ever met, and clearly the writing of Raymond Chandler has been an enormous influence on his life and his work," Owen said. "Miller adapting Chandler seemed like a perfect match."

Though Frank Miller is probably earning enough skrilla with the fees collected for adapting graphic novels such as Sin City, 300 and Ronin, the writer is working overtime to get his ass in the director's chair.

Stay tuned for updates.
