A double dose of news today for Coens fans: Universal Pictures has netted worldwide distribution rights to the brothers' "Hail Caesar!," in which Josh Brolin has officially been cast opposite George Clooney.

Working Title Films' Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan will produce this story of a '50s Hollywood fixer who manages the reputations of stars who're falling out of line. Back in Winter 2013, in the days of "Inside Llewyn Davis," the Coens told us in our Q&A that "Caesar" is "about the movie business and life and religion and faith. Faith and the movie business."

The film will reunite the Coens with both Clooney -- who has starred in their more comedic fare including "O Brother Where Art Thou," "Burn After Reading" and "Intolerable Cruelty" -- and Brolin, who played Llewelyn Moss in "No Country For Old Men."

Check out our ranking of the Coens' oeuvre here; meanwhile, they also have an upcoming collaboration with Steven Spielberg.
