Clooney, Coens on same page

25 October 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

George Clooney is reteaming with filmmakers Joel Coen and Ethan Coen for their third film together, Burn Before Reading, a spy caper about a CIA agent who loses the disc of the book he is writing.

The film will mark a more comedic take on the world of spooks than Clooney's recent Oscar-winning dramatic turn in Syriana. Clooney will play a killer in the comedy, which the screenwriting duo are adapting from former CIA director Stansfield Turner's 2005 nonfiction tome "Burn Before Reading: Presidents, CIA Directors, and Secret Intelligence."

Working Title Films, which acquired the rights to the Hyperion book, will produce the film. Working Title also produced 2000's O Brother, Where Art Thou? the first film Clooney made with the Coens.

"Burn" is slated to start principal photography in August to mid-September, after Clooney completes directing his 1920s football film Leatherheads, in which he is expected to star with Renee Zellweger.

The Coens co-write their films, which are directed by Joel Coen and produced by Ethan Coen.

In addition to "Brother," Clooney starred in the Coens' 2003 comedy Intolerable Cruelty, in which he starred opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The Coens have backburnered Suburbicon as well as the period comedy Hail Caesar, about a '20s Shakespeare troupe, in which Clooney was planning to play a hammy actor with a pencil mustache. The Coens' adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's No Country for Old Men, starring Tommy Lee Jones and Javier Bardem, is slated for release next year by Paramount Vantage. The Coens won the Oscar for best original screenplay for 1996's Fargo.

Clooney is repped by CAA; the Coens are repped by UTA.

Ferrell-McKay company laughs with Par Vantage

27 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Will Ferrell and writer-director-actor Adam McKay have signed a two-year, first-look producing deal with Paramount Vantage to make low-budget, high-concept comedies in the $10 million-$20 million range. The pact is not intended to cover Ferrell-starring vehicles but instead presents an opportunity for the actor and his frequent collaborator to grow a brand via their newly formed Gary Sanchez Prods. Vantage president John Lesher explained why the pair -- best known for frat-boy humor like Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy -- will augment the Vantage slate, which boasts a number of highbrow projects in development and production, including the Coen brothers' No Country for Old Men and Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood. "(Paramount Pictures chairman) Brad Grey and I have always envisioned that our specialty division would produce the most sophisticated and fresh material in all genres, and we are confident that Will and Adam's unique voices will be a Paramount Vantage mainstay," he said. »

No Country for Coens

3 February 2006 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- The famed Coen Brothers, Joel and Ethan, have signed on to write and direct an adaptation of No Country for Old Men, a novel by Cormac McCarthy (All the Pretty Horses) set to be released sometime in 2007. The story revolves around a Vietnam veteran, who, while hunting happens upon a drug deal gone awry along the Tex-Mex border in 1980. He makes off with a busload of money and heroin, only to have himself subsequently hunted by an old sheriff and a psychotic killer who takes care of his victims with a cattle gun used in slaughterhouses. I’m guessing they want their stash back. I can feel my testicles shrinking already. In talks to star in the film are Tommy Lee Jones (Space Cowboys) and Javier Bardem (Collateral), with Scott Rudin (The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) attached as producer. We haven’t been treated to a Coen Brothers movie since the boring-as-all-hell Ladykillers, »
