More on Suburbicon, this time something from the horses mouth- Clooney: ““I’m going to do a comedy with Joel and Ethan in around a year. I really like working with them and I like doing comedy with them. They offered me a part in Suburbicon a long time ago, and since then decided they have other projects they want to work on, so I called them up and said ‘How about me taking a spin at it?’ Because it’s a really interesting, really funny, very dark comedy.” This one seems like a go picture but, as we all know, anything can happen in movie land!

Apparenlty George Clooney is looking to direct the Coen-penned, Suburbicon (or is it Suburbacon?). Clooney’s directing debut, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, showed a lot of promise and his second movie as director, Goodnight And Good Luck, is getting great reviews so this, if it comes off, could be very good indeed.
This is what I already knew about Suburbicon – from the Future Projects page;
“A murder mystery the Coens started writing shortly after Ethan moved to New York. This one still may be a going concern in some sense, as George Clooney has mentioned that it was going to be his first film with the Coens until they decided to offer him ‘O Brother Where Art Thou.‘”It was a small part and I was going to get beaten to death with a shovel. I liked it. It was a great part”. Thanks to Ciaran Cassidy for supplying the info.”
Thanks to Matt for the nod. Jo Blo
