Photos of George Clooney Filming The American in Italy

George Has a Gun but Won't Shoot Himself in the Foot

George Clooney slipped into his assassin character and grabbed a rifle to film scenes for The American in Italy yesterday. As he works on his newest movie in the beautiful countryside, his upcoming films are trying to avoid a Clooney box office traffic jam. Up in the Air's release date was moved back to December 4 from November 13 so as not to compete with George's Men Who Stare at Goats, which comes out November 6. Plus, The Fantastic Mr Fox hits theaters November 25, which means a lot of George on the horizon — lucky us!
