Paul Greengrass To Direct George Clooney-Produced Crime Drama From Argo Writer

Variety reports that English filmmaker Paul Greengrass (United 93, The Bourne Ultimatum) is set to produce and direct an untitled crime thriller, involving New York crime syndicates, penned by Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio. The film will reunite Terrio with Argo producers Grant Heslov and George Clooney, with Clooney attached to star.

Greengrass’ last film was the 2010 thriller Green Zone, but he appears to be back in action. Next fall will see the release of his hostage drama Captain Phillips with star Tom Hanks, and his next effort will reportedly be a Martin Luther King Jr. biopic “Memphis.”

This will be the first collaboration between Greengrass and Clooney, who will be in theaters next starring opposite Sandra Bullock in Alfonso Cuaron’s sci -fi thriller Gravity. He’s also currently in negotiations to star in Brad Bird’s alien invasion film 1952, while simultaneously preparing for his next directorial effort, the WWII/art heist drama The Monuments Men.

Meanwhile, Clooney continues to be handsomer than everyone else mentioned in this news post, which is why this writer chose to use a picture of Clooney rather than Greengrass, even though Greengrass is arguably the primary focus of this piece.

What do you think? Are you excited by the news that Greengrass has a crime thriller in the works? Do you think Clooney deserves to be the featured image in this article simply because his ageless smile melts the hearts of women and men alike? Let us know in the comments.
