The director, who also helmed the 2019 sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home, will write, direct and produce the untitled film, with Clooney and Pitt on board to star and produce.

While there’s little information about the film, it’s described as telling the tale of “two lone wolf fixers assigned to do the same job”.

Finally, Pitt will again appear on screen with Bullock as he is set to make a cameo appearance in upcoming film The Lost City Of D.
