PanARMENIAN.Net - Universal Pictures has acquired worldwide rights to Joel and Ethan Coen's original screenplay Hail, Caesar. The siblings will direct the movie, which reteams them with star George Clooney, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Additionally, Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men) has boarded the project, which the Coens are producing under their Mike Zoss Productions banner alongside Working Title Films' Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan.
