George Clooney Set To Direct Coen Brothers’ Penned Movie ‘Suburbicon’
George Clooney is set to direct another movie and fans are excited about the project. The film, “Suburbicon,” will be penned by the legendary Coen Brothers who have worked on modern day cult movies like, “Raising Arizona,” “Fargo,” and “The Big Lebowski.”
George Clooney is looking to direct a 1950’s style noir movie which will be written by Joel and Ethan Coen. The film will be similar in tone with Joel and Ethan Coen’s debut screenplay, “Blood Simple,” which was ranked number 98 on AFI’s 100 best thrillers list.
Clooney and Coen brothers have worked on several projects in the past. These include romantic comedies such as, “Intolerable Cruelty” and black comedies such as, “Burn After Reading.”
The new project will likely be sterling too; Coen brothers are master script writers. They have earned over twelve Oscar nominations for their work so far. “Suburbicon” also promises to be interesting because we have not had a noir film worth watching since “Sin City.”
George Clooney’s last effort at directing was also notable in its own right. “The Monuments Men” had a superb cast that included stars such as Bill Murray, Matt Damon, and Cate Blanchett and had a really good script about Nazi possession of artifacts and art works during the second world war. It told the story of a group of soldiers set to the task of taking back artifacts that the Nazi force had forcibly obtained from the countries they had taken over. Even though the movie received mixed to positive reviews, we think that it was a good movie and a good value for entertainment.
“Suburbicon” will tell the story of a boneheaded 50’s star who gets kidnapped by the members of a mysterious cult.
