George Clooney For New Coen Brothers Movie Hail, Caesar
Gorgeous George and Josh Brolin have reportedly signed to lead cast in comedy...
George Clooney and Josh Brolin are reported to have inked a deal to appear in the next comedy from the Coen brothers.
Although it's titled Hail, Caesar - some fans might be disappointed to hear that they won't get to see the silver fox wearing a toga.
Instead, Deadline reports that the movie will tell the story of a Hollywood fixer named Eddie Mannix.
It's unclear whether the character is based on a real-life movie industry figure of the same name, or more loosely on another private detective who helped bury scandalous stories and protect stars' reputations.
Clooney has worked with Joel and Ethan Coen to popular and critical acclaim in two of their previous offbeat comedies - O Brother, Where Art Thou and Intolerable Cruelty.
Brolin has previously appeared in No Country For Old Men and the Coens' remake of classic western True Grit.
