“We have your movie star gather one hundred thousand dollars and wait instructions.” Four-time Oscar®-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen write and direct Hail, Caesar!, an all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Hail, Caesar! follows a single day in the life of a Hollywood studio fixer Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), head of physical production at Capital Pictures in the 1950s who works to keep the studio’s stars in line. His job is to maintain the clean reputation of the company and its stars, keeping them free from controversy. Mannix is advised that studio star Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) has disappeared after not showing up for work on the current production of “Hail Caesar, a Tale of Christ’s Life.”
He initially believes Whitlock has been drinking, but receives a call from a group of communists who claim to have kidnapped him and want a ransom. As Mannix gathers the cash, he simultaneously deals with an unhappy director who is working on another project, while innocent young starlet DeeAnna Moran is pregnant and unmarried. Mannix must handle all of this while keeping the gossip columnists off the scent. When Mannix is approached by an aviation company with an offer of a less-hectic, and rather lucrative, job, he must ultimately determine his true skills and passions.
With a cast that includes: Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Dolph Lundgren and Channing Tatum, Hail, Caesar! is slated to hit theaters February 5, 2016.
Such a great cast!
