The Coen Brothers are following their pattern of making a small idiosyncratic movie with a more mainstream effort, as after Inside Llewyn Davis they’re putting together Hail Caesar. It already has George Clooney attached and now Deadline reports that Josh Brolin will join him.
The film is about Eddie Mannix, a 1950s fixer who works for major Hollywood studios. His job is to try and keep the movie stars in line and also cover up their indicretions. It isn’t clear who George Clooney and Josh Brolin are portraying at this time.
Joel and Ethan Coen are set to direct from their own script.
