Two of the world’s favorite actors, Jonah Hill and Scarlett Johansson, are in talks to join the cast of the upcoming Coen Brothers’ film, Hail Caesar.
Currently the cast already boasts a pretty impressive cast lists including George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, and Ralph Fiennes.
The film follows a man named Eddie Mannix in his job as a Hollywood fixer in the 1950s. It was originally reported in 2005 that Hail Caesar would focus on a group of theater actors in the 1920s as they put together a play about ancient Rome. It’s a good possibility that the Roman-themed play will now appear in the story as a Hollywood production.
Hill has confirmed that his involvement but what role he would play has not been revealed. It was announced that Johansson’s role would be an actress that finds out that she’s pregnant right as her film is set to begin production.
Hail Caesar is set to begin production this fall. An anticipated release date has not been announced. The film was written and directed by the Coens. It will be produced under their Mike Zoss productions company with Working Title’s Tim Beven and Eric Fellner.
