Matt Damon, Julianne Moore And Josh Brolin Join George Clooney’s ‘Suburbicon’ | Film News
Much like his disappointing 2014 directorial effort The Monuments Men, George Clooney‘s sixth go round as director is shaping up to feature quite the ensemble cast. Although no contracts have been signed, Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, and Josh Brolin have all been lined up to headline Suburbicon.
Little is known about the Joel and Ethan Coen penned script at this time except that it is a 1950s-set noir in the same vein as their 1984 breakthrough film Blood Simple. Also added to the film’s credits is Oscar-winner Robert Elswit, who has worked with Clooney numerous times before (Michael Clayton, Syriana, The Men Who Stare At Goats).
With such an abundance of talent in tow, Suburbicon seems destined to be a return to form for Clooney following the poor critical reception to The Monuments Men (a film which narrowly broke even on its moderate $70 million budget). Of course all three actors are still not locked in, so there is every possibility that things may change before the film goes before cameras in October of next year. Most likely to drop out would be Brolin, who is due to start filming the two part superhero extravaganza Avengers: Infinity War around the same time.
