George Clooney’s The Men Who Stare @ Goats

The Overture Films clan released the first-look trailer of actor-morphed-Producer-slash-director Grant Heslov’s The Men Who Stare at Goats starring his friend and Smoke House partner George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey, Jeff Bridges, Rebecca Mader, Stephen Lang and Terry Serpico. When we were at 2008 Santa Film Festival covering their daily news, Heslov was shooting the film and New Mexico was a buzz about Clooney and upon watching the trailer the buzz was warranted.

The Men Who Stare at Goats hits theaters on Friday, November 6 and based on author Jon Ronson’s book of the same name. It tells the story of a secret unit within the US Army called the First Earth Battalion, whose paranormal military ideas mutated over the decades to influence interrogation techniques at Guantanamo Bay.

George Clooney and Grant Heslov’s Smoke House has a development and production deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment.
