George Clooney Is Up In The Air

George Clooney is in talks to star in Up In The Air, the new movie from Jason Reitman.

The movie will be based on the novel by Walter Kim, about a corporate downsizer who becomes obsessed with collecting air miles.

With shades of Reitman’s Thank You For Smoking and Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love, this is one movie we’re placing highly on our want-to-see list. Reitman, of course, is hot property following Juno, and Clooney is always good value, so their team-up should be very interesting indeed.

Reitman has been circling the project, which first originated with Jay Roach, for years. In fact, he wrote thirty pages of a draft before concentrating on Thank You For Smoking and Juno, but clearly it’s a movie that just wouldn’t leave his head. Let’s hope the results justify his dedication.

DreamWorks will be signing the big cheques.
