I'm glad he's focusing more on directing and leaving the screenplays to other people.

I sure hope that he'll write a new movie soon, but I like the choices he's making. And this movie is completely different from everything he has directed so far.

George Clooney has signed on to direct and star in a feature film adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton’s novel “Good Morning, Midnight” for Netflix.

Mark L. Smith will adapt the screenplay from the sci-fi thriller, which was named one of the best books of 2017 by the Chicago Review of Books. The post-apocalyptic tale follows the parallel stories of Augustine (Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, and an astronaut on board the Aether spacecraft, which is trying to return home to Earth, as Augustine races to make contact with the spaceship.

Clooney and Smokehouse Pictures’ Grant Heslov will produce alongside Anonymous Content and Syndicate Entertainment, who sourced the material.



“Grant and I couldn’t be more excited to be involved with this incredible project,” said Clooney. “Mark is a writer we’ve long admired and his script is haunting. We’re thrilled to be working with our friends at Netflix as well.”







The film, which does not yet have a title, will begin production in October.

“Having known and worked with George for over two decades, I can’t think of anyone better to bring this amazing story to life,” said Scott Stuber, head of Netflix’s film division. “The book is powerful and moving, and Mark’s adaptation is beautifully written. At its core, this is a story about human nature, and one that I know our global audiences will fall in love with, just like I did when I read it.”

The adaptation marks Clooney’s first feature film for a streamer and first project with Netflix, though he recently executive produced, appeared in, and directed a few episodes for Hulu’s series adaptation of “Catch-22.” The film also marks his first directing gig since Paramount’s “Suburbicon” in 2017 and the first film he has starred in since 2016’s “Money Monster” for Sony.

Clooney is repped by CAA.

I'm glad that this project sounds different and has nothing to do with anything political or social justice, etc. I'd like for him to look for more unique material than what he's been doing the last few years, and this sounds like an interesting project. It's also not satire for once, thank god.

I'm just glad he's working to his strengths - acting and directing. For some reason the projects he and Grant write don't seem to work well.

I wonder how long it will be before this is aired. It sounds interesting.

With the popularity of small screen streaming and limited series it provides George in some cases a more fitting way of showcasing the type of films that don’t necessarily appeal to huge audiences. The small screen allows him a far more creative and satisfying vehicle.

I don’t know ..... playing to his strength or a “correction”....people become too comfortable life gets too easy and peeps look for excitement be that a second job, a new job, a new relationship whatever.... And God laughs and sends in a curve ball .... and suddenly you wish you had never messed with the “norm” ....

Not so much playing to his strengths ... as much as praying the strengths are still there.... ready to be recovered ....

What amazes me about any film production is how very many companies, unions, and responsibilities for want of a better word are involved. When the credits go up and you see all this you realise, altho in theory you already knew, what it really  takes and how both George and Grant have evolved to become managing directors of huge concerns involving many many peoples livelihoods. Not bad for a guy from a small town in Kentucky!

PAN - I think that's why he's so well liked in the industry. He's able to helm complex productions and still manages to ensure that everyone involved is treated well. I'm sure there are many industry professionals who would tell you that isn't always the case with other producers and directors.

I like Felicity Jones....I'm assuming she's playing the part of Sully, the astronaut.

[size=30]George Clooney to Film in Iceland This Fall[/size]

By Larissa Kyzer

George Clooney will be filming his next movie in Iceland this fall. Backstage.com reports that Clooney will both star in and direct Good Morning, Midnight, a post-apocalyptic drama based on the 2016 novel of the same name by Lily Brooks-Dalton.
The story follows “two isolated survivors [as they] try to maintain contact to help each other navigate the circumstances.” One of these is Augustine (played by Clooney), a scientist in the Arctic, and another is an astronaut on a spaceship attempting to return to Earth. English actress Felicity Jones will be co-starring in the film, although her role has yet to be confirmed.
The movie is being produced for Netflix and will be filmed in both the UK and Iceland, starting in October. Netflix has a demonstrated fondness for Iceland, both as a filming location and a destination. Several of its notable series were filmed in the country in recent years—Sense8, Black Mirror, and Lost in Space, among them—and the streaming giant also made headlines in Iceland earlier this month when it brought 900 of its employees to the country on a work-sponsored vacation.

They won't start shooting until October. That's almost 3 months from now. Plenty of time to rest up and prepare. Mark Smith is adapting the screenplay, so all George has to do is read it to decide how he wants to direct - and learn his lines, of course! Very Happy
