Malkovich vs. Coens?!

It's almost unbelievable that John Malkovich and the Coen brothers have never teamed up for a film because it seems like such an obvious and amazing pairing. Well they two (or three, I guess) are ready to collaborate on the upcoming Coen comedy BURN AFTER READING. Malkovich will play Ozzie Cox, a former CIA agent whose soon-to-be ex-wife (Frances McDormand) steals a disc containing his memoirs and accidentally leaves it at the gym where it is found by a trainer (Brad Pitt) who believes he can use the info to blackmail Cox. George Clooney will play an assassin hired by the CIA to take care of the situation. The movie is very loosely based on the book by Admiral Stansfield Turner who served in the CIA during the late-1970s. Filming on BURN is expected to begin this August after the Coens wrap some pre-filming on their follow-up film A SERIOUS MAN.
