Lake Bell has been cast in the upcoming movie The Coup.

The actress joins Owen Wilson and Pierce Brosnan in the action thriller which begins production in Thailand at the end of the month, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Coup follows an American family living in Southeast Asia who get caught in the middle of a violent revolution. They must flee to safety while being hunted by a murderous rebel leader.

John Erick Dowdle will direct from a script he co-wrote with his brother Drew Dowdle.

Bell wrote, directed, produced and starred in the film In a World..., which won best screenplay at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. 

The actress recently wrapped filming on the sports drama Million Dollar Arm and currently stars on Adult Swim's Children's Hospital.
