Clooney kills Goats

George Clooney has a certain dreamy appeal, but can he slay animals just by looking at them?

We'll find out in THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS, based on Jon Ronson's book about the US military's purported flirtation with the supernatural. The story focuses on the secret First Earth Battalion, tasked with the purpose of creating "Warrior Monks," soldiers capable of walking through walls, becoming invisible, reading minds and even killing a goat telepathically. Unrealistic as it sounds, this is presented as a true story, although I'd believe pretty much anything after the past eight years.

GOATS will be directed by Clooney's producing partner Grant Heslov, who most of you will probably remember as the jittery tech guy from TRUE LIES. Clooney (who directed CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND, another questionable yet not unbelievable "true" story of secret government programs) is supposedly stung from the non-success of LEATHERHEADS, but this doesn't exactly sound like a return to the safety of the mainstream. Unless OCEAN'S FOURTEEN is announced next...
Extra Tidbit: Ronson's conspiracy book THEM is being adapted to a feature by SHAUN OF THE DEAD director Edgar Wright.
