George Clooney and Jason Reitman — Team Awesome?


I'm really happy about this movie news: George Clooney and director Jason Reitman (Juno, Thank You For Smoking) may be teaming up for the film adaptation of the Walter Kirn novel Up in the Air. Variety has details:

Clooney will play an unapologetic corporate downsizer whose untethered life is consumed by collecting air miles. . . . Reitman had separately been infatuated with the book and came into Montecito [Picture Co.] with 30 pages that showed how he saw the film. He has been writing it on and off for five years, putting it down when he read Diablo Cody’s Juno script. Reitman returned to the project in the Spring. He completed the script weeks ago and just showed it to Clooney.

It's clear that this is a labor of love for Reitman, and now he's got the dapper Clooney on his side. I can't wait to see what these two cook up.

Thank you for Smoking is a great movie, so hopefully the combination of the director with Clooney will be great.

although i think that it's a role that's somewhat stereotypically clooney - i think that it'll be a nice movie and i can't wait to see it. i like anything for reitman - and i like things that clooney's in. we'll have to wait and see what the timeline is for production and when we'll get a taste of this new movie.
