George Clooney to star in alien movie 1952?

Nov 12 2012, 10:01am CST | by

George Clooney is set to star in Disney alien movie '1952', which will be helmed by 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' director Brad Bird.

George Clooney is set to star in Disney alien movie '1952'.
The 51-year-old actor is reportedly in negotiations for the motion picture, which sees 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' director Brad Bird in line to helm the film, which has been described as an ''ultra-secret sci-fi project'', according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Jeff Jensen and Damon Lindelof - who will also produce the project - have penned the script for the movie, which is said to have similarities to Steven Spielberg's 1977 sci-fi film 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind', which sees a man make contact with aliens on planet earth.
Disney is keeping plot and cast details under wraps and sources have warned the project is yet to have been given the green light.
Next up for George is drama movie 'The Monuments Men', which he will appear in and direct a star-studded cast.
The 'Ides of March' actor will star alongside Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman and Hugh Bonneville in the motion picture, which tells the story of a group of art historians and museum curators who aim to recover artwork taken by the Nazis before Hitler destroys it.
Clooney will play US Army officer and leading art conservationist George Stout, who repatriated tens of thousands of pieces of art from the Nazis.

Interview: Oscar-winning Film Composer Steven Price On His Ethereal and Unrelenting Score for ‘Fury’

Oct 28 2014 1:40pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

In the second half of 2013, British film composer Steven Price made quite a name for himself. He scored two very popular films which were both commercial and critical hits. Once the dust of awards season settled, Price found he had walked away with some of the most coveted honors including the Academy Award for “Best Original Score” for Gravity. Alfonso Cuarón’s space fiasco film, (which starred Sandra Bullock and George Clooney) was an amazing cinematic achievement. But it was Price’s ether ...

Rumor: Schumacher's Batman May Live On in a Comic Book

Oct 27 2014 2:05pm CDT | Source: ign

For some odd reason, there's been a lot of chitchat lately about Joel Schumacher's Batman & Robin. But soon, God help us, that chatter may become something more... A few weeks ago at NYCC, star George Clooney addressed his alleged "ban" from Comic-Con, citing his infamous portrayal of the Dark Knight as the main reason. Schumacher also recently apologized for the '97 pic, saying, "George made a ...

Is Michael Keaton Still The Best Batman?

Oct 24 2014 11:08am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Michael Keaton has been taking it easy these past few years. It's hard to call his performance in Birdman a "comeback" because it's not like he disappeared. Even in the middling remake of RoboCop, Keaton managed to turn in fun work. We just haven't seen him chew into really juicy drama lately, which is exactly what he gets to do in the exceptional Birdman. His charm serves his latest film well. He plays an actor struggling w ...

Who's Really to Blame for Batman and Robin - and THOSE Bat-Nipples?

Oct 15 2014 9:45am CDT | Source: movie pilot

When it comes to superhero movies, there don't come many more epic, genre-defining - and universally panned - than Batman and Robin. After all, Joel Schumacher's 1997 Bat-flick is now arguably the defining example of big-budget, studio-influenced, merchandising-sales-led superhero film-making - and a consistently popular punchline and punching bag for Bat-fans everywhere.Most of which, in fairness, is pretty reasonable - since the movie is...not g ...

... completely awesome. In case you were confused over the sheer bad-assery of George Clooney (who, upon crashing the Tomorrowland panel at NYCC during his honeymoon, claimed he may not have been invited to past comic-con events "because of that whole Batman thing... you know, the nipples.") Tomorrowland will most certainly give your mind a poke. hnnnggg.I attended the panel on behalf of Moviepilot, and after getting over the heart attack of seeing ...
