George Clooney In Talks To Direct Sci-Fi Thriller Echo


Suburbicon director George Clooney is reportedly in early negotiations to direct Christopher MacBride’s science-fiction thriller Echo for 20th Century Fox.

Echo will be produced by 21 Laps’ Shawn Levy, Dan Levine and Dan Cohen. The triumvirate recently produced the critically-acclaimed sci-fi success Arrival, starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, about two language specialists trying to communicate with invading aliens to discern their intent. This picture is said to centre around a drone specialist who suspects his lover has been replaced.

Christopher MacBride wrote and directed the 2012 horror-thriller The Conspiracy. Clooney’s next project will be an event series based upon the classic Joseph Heller novel Catch-22, in which he will both star and direct. No release date has been set for Echo.
