George Clooney is kidnapped for ransom in 'Hail, Caesar!'
Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum and Tilda Swinton also star in this Coen Brothers film
Joel and Ethan Coen are back with another Hollywood comedy film called Hail, Caesar! The film features a stellar cast of celebrities such as George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand and more.
The film, set in the 1950s, focuses on Josh's character Eddie Mannix who is a 'studio fixer.' His job is mainly to keep the studio's stars in line. When "one of the biggest stars in the world" Baird Whitlock (George) is kidnapped for ransom, he finds himself in plenty of other sticky situations dealing with the other stars.
In the trailer, we get a glimpse of Scarlett performing stunts as a mermaid with a New York (Noo Yawk!) accent, Channing as a tap-dancing sailor and George in full Julius Caesar costume. It looks like it's full of screwball comedy and lots of fun, thanks to a cast we're used to seeing in more serious roles.
Hail, Caesar! is slated for a February 2016 release in the US.
