According to a new report, Bullock will lead an all-female Ocean’s Eleven film, with Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) directing. Clooney, for his part, doesn’t seem to mind — he’s helping produce it. Read about the female Oceans Eleven movie after the jump. Read More »

The directing duo of Joel and Ethan Coen has done some great work with American treasure George Clooney. They first worked together in 2000 with the spectacular O Brother Where Art Thou (one of my favorite Coen Brothers movies) and followed it up with Intolerable Cruelty in 2003 and Burn After Reading in 2008. However, it sounds like their next collaboration will shake things up a bit in more ways than one.
George Clooney is currently in talks to direct Suburbicon, a script from the Coen Brothers that has been gestating for over a decade. Find out more about the new George Clooney Coen Brothers collaboration below! Read More »

The answers are fascinating.

Until now, all the trailers for Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland have primarily sold wonder. A girl finds a pin that shows her another world. There’s a flying bathtub, giant robots, someone with a jet pack, and a rocket powered Eiffel Tower. Just a big hodgepodge of awesome.
A third trailer has now been released and it is much more focused. It’s pretty much an entire scene from the film, featuring George Clooney and Britt Robertson, with lots of what makes the film so unique. Clooney’s house is a Temple of Doom for the people chasing them, littered with crazy defensive gadgets aiding in the battle. Less is learned about the movie as a whole, but we see the potential this scenario has to show us anything is possible.
