Scott keeps a large variety of projects in development at any given time, offering attention to each until money, schedules, and ideas coalesce.

No Escape
The last thriller from Owen Wilson that I could remember is “Behind Enemy Lines,” an action thriller from 2001 that I liked.

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer in "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."
I went into “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” expecting to be thrilled, entertained, and charmed by beautiful people chasing each other around the globe in a game of cat-and-mouse like the recent “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” -- except with bland male leads (Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer). At least, that’s what I got from the trailer.
