Pitt Joins Clooney in Coen Brothers' Burn After Reading

In addition to The Coen Brothers' new film No Country for Old Men that is debuting at the Cannes Film Festival this year, they've got another one already set to move onto in the future. The film is a black comedy called Burn After Reading about a CIA agent who loses a disc of the book he is writing that is shrouded in secrecy.

The whole film sounds like a rather mysterious and yet interesting story, but still comedic. Unlike Fracture opening this weekend, which is an unintentionally comedic thriller, this sounds like it's planning to be both, and hopefully the Coen's do a great job pulling it off.

The latest news from Hollywood Reporter on this project is that Brad Pitt has signed on as well as George Clooney in the film. The screenplay was written by both Joel and Ethan Coen with Joel directing and should begin shooting this August.
