Josh Brolin Co-Star With George Clooney

Universal Pictures will distribute

Josh Brolin is set to co-star with George Clooney in the Joel and Ethan Coens’ next pic, “Hail Caesar!”

Universal Pictures has come on to distribute, with the Coens producing along with Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan for Working Title Films. The Coens will also direct. This collaboration will be the eighth between the Coen brothers and Working Title.

The story follows a Hollywood fixer in the 1950s working to keep a studio’s stars in line.

Clooney has worked with the Coens on several films, including “O Brother Where Art Thou” and “Burn After Reading,” while Brolin last worked with them on “No Country for Old Men” and “True Grit.”

Both stars are repped by CAA, and the Coens are repped by UTA.
