Cities is described as a cautionary tale. Donaldson has co-written the script from an original script titled 'Extreme Cities', written by Glenn Wilhide. The movie is all about greed and ambition that takes place on a global scale in three colliding story lines set in the exuberant months leading up to the Dow Jones all-time stock market high, writes The Hollywood Reporter.
Anil Kapoor is said to be playing a Mumbai cop, who fights against corruption, while Clive Owen will reprise the role of a New York-based hedge fund manager, who has everything he wants like money, sex and power - but he wants more. The shooting of Cities will start in October and the film unit is expected to hold its filming in London, Mumbai and New York.
