    Coens' Burn After Reading Coming in September
    Source: Focus Features
    March 3, 2008


    Focus Features today announced that it will open Burn After Reading, the new film from Joel and Ethan Coen, Academy Award-winning directors of this year's Best Picture Oscar winner No Country for Old Men, domestically nationwide on Friday, September 12th.

    Joel and Ethan Coen are writers, producers, and directors of Focus Features and Working Title Films' Burn After Reading. The film stars Academy Award winner George Clooney, two-time Academy Award nominee John Malkovich, Academy Award winner Frances McDormand, Academy Award nominee Brad Pitt, and Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton. Working Title co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are executive-producing Burn After Reading with Robert Graf, who has worked on the Coens' last five features in various producing capacities.

    In the dark spy-comedy, Malkovich plays an ousted CIA official whose memoir accidentally falls into the hands of two unwise D.C. gym employees intent on exploiting their find. Swinton, this year's Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Michael Clayton, plays the wife of Malkovich's character. Burn After Reading also stars Richard Jenkins, who previously starred for the Coens in The Man Who Wasn't There.

    The director of photography on Burn After Reading is Academy Award nominee Emmanuel Lubezki (Children of Men). BAFTA Award nominee Mary Zophres is the costume designer, marking her eighth consecutive feature with the Coens. Jess Gonchor, production designer on No Country for Old Men, encores in that capacity.

    It's going to be a twist ending where Brad Pitt and George Clooney end up robbing a casino.

    I;d imagine they will get one trailer out in May to capitalize on the Cohens Oscar win.
