Owen Thrilled At Wolfgang Offer

British actor CLIVE OWEN is celebrating after landing the lead role in WOLFGANG PETERSEN's eagerly awaited remake of THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE.

The CLOSER star will play the heroic priest Hollywood actor GENE HACKMAN portrayed in the 1972 disaster movie about a group of holidaymakers who are forced to fight for survival after the cruise ship they're on sinks.

A source says, "Clive's thrilled. Even if he leaves LA empty-handed, he'll be able to take great comfort from the fact Wolfgang wants him in the film."

The Poseidon Adventure is slated for release in May next year (06).
