Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Frances McDormand are all teaming for the new Coen brothers’ black comedy “Burn After Reading” says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story centers on a CIA agent who loses the disc of the book he is writing. The Joel and Ethan Coen penned screenplay is shrouded in secrecy, so it is unclear what role Pitt will play.
Pitt begins filming his work in late August. Joel and Ethan Coen penned the screenplay, and Joel will direct the Working Title project which Focus Features will distribute worldwide.
