George Clooney + Brad Pitt + Coen Brothers

Not long after their Ocean's Thirteen premiere, Brad Pitt and George Clooney will be collaborating again — this time with the help of the Coen brothers. The gentlemen will be starring in the brothers' black comedy Burn After Reading which "centers on a CIA agent who loses the disc of the book he is writing." Other than that tidbit, the details of the screenplay are a mystery.

Perhaps we can gauge how the Coen brothers are doing these days by how their film No Country for Old Men is received at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

The brothers have already proven they can work well with Clooney when they made O Brother, Where Art Thou? (just gonna go ahead and skip over Intolerable Cruelty for now), and I for one am hoping for another killer soundtrack like the one that came from that O Brother — maybe even with Clooney himself singing again. In general the Pitt-Clooney combination is a recipe for success, so here's hoping the Coen brothers can provide the rest to make this awesome.
