Berlin: George Clooney-Matt Damon’s Dramedy ‘Suburbicon’ Finds Financing

Black Bear Pictures will finance the comedy-drama “Suburbicon,” starring George Clooney, Matt Damon and Julianne Moore with Clooney directing.

Bloom has acquired the sales rights for international markets and will launch sales at the Berlin Film Festival. CAA is handling U.S. rights.

Joel and Ethan Coen have written the script for “Suburbicon,” which is currently in pre-production. Joel Silver will produce under his Silver Pictures banner alongside Clooney and Grant Heslov under their Smokehouse Pictures label, and Teddy Schwarzman for Black Bear Pictures.

The movie will be set in the quiet family town of “Suburbicon,” where the best and worst of humanity is hilariously reflected through the deeds of seemingly ordinary people. When a home invasion turns deadly, a picture perfect family turns to blackmail, revenge and betrayal.

Clooney’s directing credits include “Monuments Men,” “Leatherheads,” “The Ides of March,” “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” and “Good Night and Good Luck.”

The Coen brothers wrote and directed “Hail, Caesar!,” which will open the Berlin International Film Festival on Feb. 11. The cast includes Clooney as well as Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Tilda Swinton, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes and Jonah Hill.

Bloom and Silver Pictures are in post-production on Shane Black’s detective thriller “The Nice Guys,”  starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling for Warner Bros.

Clooney is represented by CAA, Damon is repped by WME and Moore by CAA.
