Paramount Pictures has acquired U.S. distribution to George Clooney’s black comedy “Suburbicon,” starring Matt Damon, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin and Julianne Moore.
The film is expected to begin shooting this October in Los Angeles.
Joel and Ethan Coen have written the script for “Suburbicon,” which is currently in pre-production. Joel Silver will produce under his Silver Pictures banner alongside Clooney and Grant Heslov under their Smokehouse Pictures label, and Teddy Schwarzman for Black Bear Pictures. Clooney will direct.
The movie will be set in the quiet family town of “Suburbicon,” where the best and worst of humanity is hilariously reflected through the deeds of seemingly ordinary people. When a home invasion turns deadly, a picture-perfect family turns to blackmail, revenge and betrayal.
