And now we know. George Clooney is indeed starring in the Coen Brothers' next film, Hail Caesar, which he has been attached to for years.
Not only that, reports Variety, Josh Brolin is now signing on too so the cast seems to be coming together fast and is as A-list as ever.
We don't know who will be playing the lead role of Eddie Mannix (though I'd assume Clooney), a Hollywood executive and "fixer" in the 1950s who kept stars' images squeaky clean in the press even as debauchery and mayhem went down behind closed doors.
Filming starts this fall, with – hopefully – Roger Deakins doing the cinematography.
