Oscar Isaac And Jason Clarke Join William Monahan's Mojave

William Monahan, who most notably took home a Best Adapted Screenplay Academy Award for his work on Martin Scorsese's The Departed, has found his leads for his next directorial project. And much like London Boulevard, his last project which starred Colin Farrell and Kiera Knightley, the project is built on two very talented performers. Atlas Independent, and Henceforth Pictures have announced that Oscar Isaac and Jason Clarke have been tapped to star in Mojave.

In a press release published by Deadline it's noted that Monahan also wrote the original screenplay, but as of now all plot details are being kept under wraps. The same can be said about project details as well, as the announcement doesn't say when the film is aiming to go before cameras or when the studio is planning on bringing the finished product to theaters.

Both Clarke and Isaac have kept busy this year and will be continuing that streak going into 2013. The former, an Australian native, was featured in Lawless this past summer alongside Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf, and will soon be back in theaters as a part of Kathryn Bigelow's aready-acclaimed Osama Bin Laden drama Zero Dark Thirty. He has wrapped production on Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, Roland Emmerich's White House Down and Lincoln drama The Green Blade Rises, all of which will be out next year.

Isaac's appearances have been more low-key starring in the indie Revenge for Jolly!, taking a small role in The Bourne Legacy and playing a part in the teacher drama Won't Back Down. Some time next year he will be taking the lead in the Coen brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis, and he recently completed filming the indie Therese Raquin with Elizabeth Olsen and Jessica Lange. He is currently filming Hoseein Amini's The Two Faces of January.
