October 24, 2015 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

Deadline reports that George Clooney’s long gestating project, Suburbicon, is moving forward at Sony’s TriStar Pictures. The project has been in development for quite some time, and it features an original script by Joel and Ethan Coen.

The film is described as “a noir drama in the vein of the Coens’ breakout film Blood Simple.” Few other details are known about the plot, but it is reportedly set in the 1950s. Clooney is also expected to play a part in the film.

Clooney previously collaborated with the Coens for the 2000 hit O Brother, Where Art Thou?, 2003’s Intolerable Cruelty, and 2008’s Burn After Reading. He also stars in their next film, Hail, Caesar!, which is due out on February 5, 2016.
