Clooney Turns Hitman For “Gentleman”

George Clooney is set to star in “A Very Private Gentleman” Focus Features says Variety.

Based on the Martin Booth novel, Clooney will play an assassin who hides out in an idyllic Italian town before carrying out a final assignment.

He resists his usual aversion to human interaction, and his friendships and romantic entanglements complicate his mission.

Anton Corbijn helms from a script by Rowan Joffe. Clooney, Grant Heslov and Anne Carrey will produce.

Shooting kicks off this Fall in Italy.
