George Clooney Teams With ‘Bourne’ Director, ‘Argo’ Writer For Crime Drama

Tempting as it is, try to resist the urge to tell the following news to “Argo” eff itself: “Bourne Supremacy” and “Ultimatum” director Paul Greengrass is teaming up with the writer of Ben Affleck’s hostage drama and none other than George Clooney for a crime drama all their own.

Variety has the news that Greengrass, Clooney and “Argo” writer Chris Terrio are joining forces for an untitled crime drama. Details on the title and plot are completely under wraps; for now, all that’s known is the film is “set in the world of New York criminal syndicates.”

Honestly, that’s more than enough information for the time being, as the talent alone is enough to demand attention: Greengrass behind the lens, Clooney producing (alongside his Smoke House producing partner Grant Heslov) and starring, Terrio on the script. With those ingredients in place, what more do you need to know right now?
