Robert De Niro joins Killer Elite

Looks like the Killer Elite just got some attitude as De Niro joins a cast of the action thriller.

Dark Horizons reports:

Based on the Ranulph Fiennes novel ‘The Feather Man’, Clive Owen will play the senior field operative of a secret group of former British special forces members fighting to protect the families of fellow SAS agents.

Jason Statham plays a former Navy SEAL who comes out of retirement in order to lead a team of assassins in pursuit of them. De Niro has been approached but has not yet been confirmed to play Statham’s mentor who has been kidnapped and is being used as leverage against him.

Along with De Niro, the cast will include Dominic Purcell (“Prison Break”), Yvonne Strahovski (“Chuck”), Aden Young (“The Starter Wife”), Ben Mendelsohn (“Vertical Limit”), Lachy Hulme (“The Matrix Revolutions”) and Firass Dirani (“Underbelly: The Golden Mile”).

Ok, they had me at Yvonne Strahovski.

I really hope she has an action role and isn’t just some eyecandy in the flick. Oh who am I kidding. She can be that too.
