Pitt back with Clooney
Apr. 20, 2007
Brad Pitt and George Clooney just can't get enough of each other. The actors who have worked together on the OCEAN'S films (version THIRTEEN coming this summer) will reteam for the upcoming Coen brothers' flick BURN AFTER READING. Clooney had been set to star in the adaptation of the novel of the same name by Admiral Stansfield Turner. While Variety says the screenplay is shrouded in secrecy, your buds here at JoBlo.com are here to shed some light on the dark comedy with some exclusive details. Clooney will star as Osbourne Cox, a former CIA agent shopping his memoirs. A data CD with a draft of his writings is accidentally leaked after his ex-wife's divorce attorney (who has stolen the files as ammunition) leaves them at the gym. The disc is found by gym employees Linda Litzke and Chad Feldheimer who decide to sell what they think is the confidential information to the highest bidder in order to pay for a series of expensive plastic surgeries. Frances McDormand would star as Litzke and while I can't confirm it, I'm guessing Pitt will play Feldheimer (he could also be playing Harry, a former colleague of Cox's). All sounds very Coen and pretty damn funny. Filming on BURN is expected to begin this August.
