By this point in the careers of the Coen brothers, they have an embarrassment of past talent to draw upon for the next films. And for their upcoming "Hail Caesar," they've tapped two leading men who have been part of some of their most successful films to date.

Josh Brolin ("No Country For Old Men," "True Grit") has joined the previously reported George Clooney ("O Brother, Where Art Thou?," "Intolerable Cruelty," "Burn After Reading") in the siblings' next film, "Hail Caesar." Even more, Universal has swooped in to distribute the film, a long develping project that focuses on a fixer in the 1950s who works for Hollywood studios to protect their stars.

It'll be the first time Brolin and Clooney have paired up for a feature film (though they both appeared in the 2012 doc "Radioman") and that it's for a Coens pic is really promising stuff. No word yet on when production will begin, but it looks like Ethan and Joel are getting their ducks in a row to get going soon. [Variety]

    Yeah, sounds promising... as long as it's not gurning, screwball 'comedy' Clooney.

    "a fixer in the 1950s who works for Hollywood studios to protect their stars."

    Michael Clayton meets Barton Fink, nice.
