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.
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.
