George Clooney and Josh Brolin are set to co-star in Joel and Ethan Coen's next movie, Hail Caesar!, which is set in 50s-era Hollywood.

The film will be Clooney’s fourth collaboration with the Coens, after Burn After Reading, Intolerable Cruelty and O Brother Where Art Thou. It will beBrolin’s third, after No Country for Old Men and True Grit.

Hail Caesar! brings the Coens back into comedy after their last film, the musical drama Inside Llewyn Davis. Set in the 1950s, it tells the story of a fixer working to keep a Hollywood studio’s stars in line.
