George Clooney va regiza si juca rolul principal in Good Morning, Midnight, adaptarea romanului scris de Lily Brooks-Dalton.

Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) va adapta scenariul thriller-ului S.F., considerata una dintre cele mai bune carti ale anului 2017 de catre Chicago Review of Books. Povestea post-apocaliptica prezinta destinele paralele ale lui Augustine (George Clooney), un om de stiinta singuratic care locuieste in Arctica si a unui astronaut de la bordul navei spatiale Aether, care incearca sa se intoarca acasa, pe Pamant. Augustine va face tot posibilul pentru a lua legatura cu nava spatiala.

Clooney si Grant Heslov de la Smokehouse Pictures vor produce noul film Netflix, alaturi de Anonymous Content si Syndicate Entertainment. Filmarile vor incepe in luna octombrie.

Grant and I couldn’t be more excited to be involved with this incredible project. 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,” a declarat Clooney.

Having known and worked with George for over two decades, I can’t think of anyone better to bring this amazing story to life. 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,” a adugat Scott Stuber, conducatorul departamentului Filme din cadrul Netflix.

Aceasta adaptare reprezinta primul film in care joaca celebrul actorul dupa o pauza de peste trei ani, ultimul fiind cel principal din drama Money Monster (2016). De asemenea, Suburbicon (2017) a fost ultimul film regizat de George Clooney.
