Throughout the years, George Clooney and Brad Pitt have teamed up multiple times – not just on Ocean’s Eleven (and the subsequent Twelve and Thirteen), but also on the Coen Brothers’ Burn After Reading. And now, 16 years after that comedic shaggy-dog tale, the duo is back on screen together, teaming up in Jon Watts’ upcoming comedy-thriller Wolfs. That’s a proper movie-movie-star pairing, combining to lead Watts’ return to more grounded territory after helming Spider-Man: Homecoming, Far From Home, and No Way Home; his latest film sees Clooney and Pitt play solitary crime scene fixers, who suddenly find themselves having to work together after both being called to clean up the same mess. Watch the trailer here:

Wolfs (it’s going to take a few goes to get used to how that title sounds) looks to be that all-too-rare thing – a film-star-led original studio picture, not originating from any kind of source material. This one’s both written and directed by Watts, whose career kicked into gear with the Kevin Bacon-starring Cop Car, and he’s clearly channeling his considerable Spider-Man cache – helming three films grossing roughly $4 billion combined in the space of four-or-five years – into making something all-new. Pitt and Clooney are joined by Amy Ryan and Austin Abrams as the two fixers’ night spirals further out of control.

We’ll see if Wolfs can spin the combined might of two all-out A-listers into box office gold when it hits cinemas on 20 September – and beyond that, it’s due to make its way to Apple TV+. As for Watts, he’s got a busy time coming up, not only releasing his Wolfs, but preparing to launch his Star Wars series Skeleton Crew (co-created with Christopher Ford) on Disney+ before the end of the year.
