Clive Owen Will Star in The FX Series RETREAT From THE OA Creators Britt Marling and Zal Batmanglij

FX has announced the full cast of its upcoming limited series Retreat, which comes from The OA creators Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij. The series is described as “a radical conceptualization of the whodunit with a new kind of detective at the helm — a gen Z amateur sleuth named Darby Hart (Emma Corrin). Darby and 11 other guests are invited by a reclusive billionaire to participate in a Retreat at a remote and dazzling location. When one of the other guests is found dead, Darby must fight to prove it was murder against a tide of competing interests and before the killer takes another life.”

The ‘Retreat’: Brit Marling & Zal Batmanglij’s New Series Adds Clive Owen, Alice Braga, Harris Dickinson & More

Writer/directors Brit Marling and Zal Batmangli are a terrific creative pair, consistently delivering a mix of high-concept and adult drama into a super compelling assemblage. While their ambitious Netflix show “The OA” didn’t fare so well on the streamer—critically acclaimed with a hardcore fandom, but not really great ratings—other televisions competitors have recognized their talent. So, their next gig is the murder mystery series, “The Retreat,” and it’s just expanded its cast in a major way.

Clive Owen was cast as Bill Clinton on Impeachment: American Crime Story because of his "emotive eyes"

"Clinton was known for taking up a lot of space in a room and for having a certain type of magnetism, which Clive inherently has. All eyes go to him,” says executive producer Brad Simpson. “Clive has something that Clinton also has, which is a lot going on behind these really emotive eyes. Then there’s the basic thing, of course, that Clive is just an incredible actor.” When Owen was first approached, he had some misgivings over the role. But ultimately, Owen said he was up for the challenge of playing the disgraced president. “There’s something sort of attractive about being scared. It pushes you to do things that you would not ordinarily do,” he says. “And the fascination of trying to recreate some of that footage exactly as it was — I couldn’t shake that off.”
