With George Clooney’s Catch-22 having now premiered, we have word on another new project for the one-time Batman.
Via Variety, Clooney has signed on for Netflix’s adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton’s Good Morning, Midnight. Much like Catch-22, Clooney will be on acting and directing duties.
For those not familiar with the 2017 sci-fi novel, the official blurb on Good Morning, Midnight reads:
The post-apocalyptic tale follows the parallel stories of Augustine, a lonely scientist in the Arctic, and an astronaut on board the Aether spacecraft, which is trying to return home to Earth, as Augustine races to make contact with the spaceship.
Clooney will be playing Augustine in the Netflix movie adaptation, with The Revenant’s Mark L. Smith penning the project.
Expect more on Good Morning, Midnight as it continues to develop.
